kernel oplocks (G)
For UNIXes that support kernel based oplocks (currently
only IRIX and the Linux 2.4 kernel), this parameter allows
the use of them to be turned on or off.
Kernel oplocks support allows Samba oplocks to be broken
whenever a local UNIX process or NFS operation accesses a
file that smbd(8) has oplocked. This allows complete data
consistency between SMB/CIFS, NFS and local file access
(and is a very cool feature :-).
=> This parameter defaults to on on systems that have the
support, and off on systems that don't. You should never
need to touch this parameter.
See also the oplocks and level2 oplocks parameters.
=>? Default: kernel oplocks = yes
Defaults to yes, but we (FreeBSD) don't have this feature (yet).
