Yes, Maybe... I will check it after sending ksmbd to linux-next.

Because of smb2.acls.GENERIC failure.

get the original sd
Testing generic bits 0x00000000
time: 2020-12-15 00:00:37.940992
failure: GENERIC [
(../../source4/torture/smb2/acls.c:439) Incorrect status NT_STATUS_SHARING_VIOLATION - should be NT_STATUS_OK

I really don't understand this test. This testcase expect that FILE_DELETE is set in response if desired access
of smb2 open is FILE_MAXIMAL_ACCESS.
I don't know why smb2 open should be allowed although FILE_SHARE_DELETE is not set in previous open in this test.
Can you give me a hint ?

Yes, We need to handle the groups list. Will fix it.

ksmbd_override_fsids could be called recursively.
work->saved_cred_level prevents ksmbd from overriding fs[g|u]id again.

Okay. Will update it.

> 6. Why is SMB_SERVER_CHECK_CAP_NET_ADMIN an compile time option and why is it off by default?
>    I think the behavior should be enforced without a switch.
I can make it default yes. Can you explain more why it should be enforced ?

Thanks for sharing your review!
