[Samba] logging of transferred files

Had the same issue, it may not be possible to get samba to not use

We got what we wanted regardless by adding:

*.*;smbd_audit.none   /var/log/all.log

*.*   /var/log/samba/audit.log

to syslog.conf

> I am able to get extd_audit to load, but I cannot force it to stop logging
> to syslog and only to the smb logs, even with syslog = 0 and log level = 0
> vfs:2

> Any ideas?
