Reported by one to the LibreELEC users, that smb (and smbclient -L) do
not list the shares available; since smbd version 4.16.0.

I have tested the following clients:
- smbclient 4.15.6
- smbclient 4.13.17
- windows 11 (Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.22579.100])

all with the same results when connecting to smbd 4.16.0


LibreELEC:~ # smbclient -U libreelec -L localhost
Password for [WORKGROUP\libreelec]:

        Sharename       Type      Comment
        ---------       ----      -------
LibreELEC:~ #

Connections to smbd version 4.13.17 and 4.15.6 return the list of shares.

I note a similar resolved bug (but with smbstatus) -

Further info and testing results captured in the LibreELEC PR -

Please let me know if there is anything else I need to test / review.
