Just talked to Metze: In the smb2 negprot we should do versioning.
Metze's idea is for the client to offer a list of "protocol
versions" in the negprot blob, the server then chooses. What's a
"protocol version"? It's the SMB2_CREATE_TAG_POSIX. This way we can
gradually put stuff in and mark the current definition as
experimental. Once everybody is happy, we switch over to a new
TAG_POSIX GUID and call this done.

What do you think?
