[PATCH] Making shares unaccessible at root level mountable (aka solving bsc#8950 ...again)

Hi all,

I've come up with a new solution for the problem (attached). Between
the long, old and irrelevant comments on the bug report and the various
mailing-list threads it was getting hard to understand. So I've written
a summary which explains the problem in details and the 2 proposed


The new solution is basically switching to the old prefixpath system
when the normal method of querying intermediary path fails. It's much
more simpler.

*Any* feedback would be nice. I haven't noticed any problems so far but
I haven't run the xfs test suite (I still have to figure out how
to make it play nice with cifs...). I'm sending to samba-tech too in
hopes of reviews/comments.
