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).
