Description Tobias Oetiker 2004-09-29 23:09:38 UTC
When I work on a linux kernel with samba unix-extensions support compiled in,
and the server supports it, I have no way to disable unix-extensions client-side
when mounting a share off that server.

"echo 0 > /proc/fs/cifs/LinuxExtensionsEnabled"

works for cifs vfs

For older smbfs, I don't mind taking a patch forward, but it doesn't seem worth 
the trouble since the cifs vfs can now replace it for most usage scenarios and 
probably better to focus on any adding to cifs vfs the few remaining misc 
features that are only in smbfs.

so it can be closed
