That's going to take a little while, there are still many major
vendors (small routers mostly) who depend on this. Still it'll
be easier to remove the server code than the client.

My idea is when the last line of SMB1 and previous protocol
code is removed from the server we rename the tree Samba5 :-).

Makes for a good marketing pitch anyway :-).

But first we have to finish the VFS modernization / rewrite
to move to the XXXXat() syscalls (now standardized in the
OpenGroup thank goodness :-) and merge in the SMB3+posix
extensions code.

This is a boatload of work. Engineers welcome to help :-).
