[Samba] CIFS VFS: in dmesg when Linux accesses eComStation's (OS/2) FAT filesystem shares

Items in dmesg when FAT share's are accessed from web browser:
CIFS VFS: bogus file nlink value 0

When accessed from FC/L (OFM (orthodox filemanager)):
CIFS VFS: illegal date, month 0 day: 0

When the share is initially mounted:
CIFS: Attempting to mount //hostname/E
Use of the less secure dialect vers=1.0 is not recommended unless required for
access to very old servers
CIFS VFS: Send error in QFSAttributeInfo = -95

/etc/fstab entry for //hostname/E:
//hostname/E /smbmnt/hostname/E cifs
0 0

Kernel, Samba and CIFS client versions:
Linux 00srv 4.12.14-lp151.28.44-default #1 SMP Fri Mar 20 18:20:20 UTC 2020
(dbf1aea) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

What needs to be done to quiet dmesg when these file access occur? These didn't
occur until some not all that recent updates to Samba/CIFS versions, maybe a year
or more, I'm not sure, but ISTR once upon a time complete silence from such touches.
