[PATCH] vfs: ignore shared VHDX create context by default

Attached is a fix for https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11753.

This patch causes smbd to ignore SVHDX_OPEN_DEVICE_CONTEXT or 
SVHDX_OPEN_DEVICE_CONTEXT_V2 create contexts by default.

The default can be overriden by a VFS module if this module adds support 
for RSVD protocol (not sure all the pieces are in there).

This fixes Windows backup against Samba 4.3.x series.

[MS-SMB2] rev 48.0 states ( that the open should fail if this 
create context is specified and the server does not support RSVD (a.k.a. 
SCSI tunneling) protocol. However, according to discussions with 
dochelp at microsoft.com, the context should be ignored in this case.

Review/push appreciated.

Subject: [PATCH] smbd: ignore SVHDX create context

According to discussions with dochelp at microsoft.com, an SMB
server should ignore an SVHDX_OPEN_DEVICE_CONTEXT or
SVHDX_OPEN_DEVICE_CONTEXT_V2 create context if it does not
support the RSVD protocol. This is contrary to [MS-SMB2] rev 48.0
which states ( that the open should fail in this case.

Failing the create fails Windows backup if the SMB dialect is
SMB3.0.2 or higher.

Hopefully a new revision of MS-SMB2 will clear this up in the future.

Meanwhile, this patch modifies smbd to ignore the
SVHDX_OPEN_DEVICE_CONTEXT by default. This can be overriden by a VFS
module if a VFS module adds support for RSVD.
