Please don't land this until I've gotten my removal of
lp_posix_pathnames() patch landed :-).

I really don't want to have to re-do it, and you're
in the process of modifying thing anyway :-).

Good news is it's passing local make test so I'll
submit it for review tomorrow (Monday Morning Pacific).

Woo Hoo - no more lp_posix_pathnames() in any SMB1/2/3
direct codepath !
