Does linux smb2 client supports DFS capability?

Hello All,

I am trying to connect to a DFS enabled share from a linux(RHEL6) smb2 client. And I could see that, client just stops connecting the share as soon as it sees PATH NOT COVERED error. Then I have observed that its actually not negotiating the DFS capability at all.

It is mentioned in the following guide(by Steve French) that DFS support is not yet available.

I would like to know if there any recent work done to support the same.
