I did a quick check and there are about thirty places were
SMB_VFS_FILE_ID_CREATE() is called via vfs_file_id_from_sbuf(). And we
do not have a struct smb_fname available in all places. So this would
result in a large code change and I don't know if it's worth the effort
as vfs_fileid is only used in very few Samba installations.
