According to [MS-FSCC] if the file has the REPARSE_TAG attribute, the
EaSize field must be interpreted as a reparse tag for these info levels:

* FileFullDirectoryInfo
* FileBothDirectoryInfo
* FileIdFullDirectoryInfo
* FileIdBothDirectoryInfo

Otherwise we have code for querying the reparse tag in

	rc = SMB2_ioctl_init(tcon, server,
			     &rqst[1], fid.persistent_fid,
			     fid.volatile_fid, FSCTL_GET_REPARSE_POINT,
			     true /* is_fctl */, NULL, 0,
			     CIFSMaxBufSize -
