Err. Sure - the names don't match though, due
to the FSP_XXX component.

But I can certainly define the SMB_FILENAME_XX_FLAG
in terms of the FSP_POSIX_FLAGS_XX.

The only one that applies is FSP_POSIX_FLAGS_PATHNAMES,
as the others cover attributes of open files (locking,
renames etc.) that simply don't apply to pure pathnames.
