[Samba] Can CIFS files in read only mode be cached by client?

I am writing a Linux server, and I want to pre-fetch a number of CIFS files
and cache locally. The files are on a CIFS share mounted as read only.

I was planning on opening the file, calling
on the file descriptor, and then closing the file.

Will this work? Is there a better way of doing this?
