Been doing some digging, and it seems for SMB1 we
can ignore any @GMT-token in the path if:

FLAGS2_REPARSE_PATH            0x0400

is *NOT* set. At least in master we have
the flags field inside struct smb_filename,
which should allow us to flag any path
containing a @GMT-token to make the
shadow2 and snapper modules much more
efficient (they won't have to strip
paths on every VFS call).

This could help a *lot*, if we plumb
this in via unix_convert() pathname
processing for both SMB1 and SMB2..
