Mike, I fixed this for you for 4.1.x, creating the
infrastructure layer to allow the unchanged smbclient
code to use SMB2/2 under the covers.

In order to get a back port to 3.6.x, this is when Xerox needs
to pay a contractor I'm afraid (or do the engineering
work yourself, which I'll be happy to help with :-).

There are limits to what can be supported for free
from the Team, and this is over that limit, sorry.
