	help
	  This is the client VFS module for the SMB3 family of NAS protocols,
	  (including support for the most recent, most secure dialect SMB3.1.1)
	  as well as for earlier dialects such as SMB2.1, SMB2 and the older
	  Common Internet File System (CIFS) protocol.  CIFS was the successor
	  to the original dialect, the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol, the
	  native file sharing mechanism for most early PC operating systems.

	  The SMB3 protocol is supported by most modern operating systems
	  and NAS appliances (e.g. Samba, Windows 10, Windows Server 2016,
	  MacOS) and even in the cloud (e.g. Microsoft Azure).
	  The older CIFS protocol was included in Windows NT4, 2000 and XP (and
	  later) as well by Samba (which provides excellent CIFS and SMB3
	  server support for Linux and many other operating systems). Use of
	  dialects older than SMB2.1 is often discouraged on public networks.
	  This module also provides limited support for OS/2 and Windows ME
	  and similar very old servers.

	  This module provides an advanced network file system client
	  for mounting to SMB3 (and CIFS) compliant servers.  It includes
	  support for DFS (hierarchical name space), secure per-user
	  session establishment via Kerberos or NTLM or NTLMv2, RDMA
	  (smbdirect), advanced security features, per-share encryption,
	  directory leases, safe distributed caching (oplock), optional packet
	  signing, Unicode and other internationalization improvements.

	  In general, the default dialects, SMB3 and later, enable better
	  performance, security and features, than would be possible with CIFS.
	  Note that when mounting to Samba, due to the CIFS POSIX extensions,
	  CIFS mounts can provide slightly better POSIX compatibility
	  than SMB3 mounts. SMB2/SMB3 mount options are also
	  slightly simpler (compared to CIFS) due to protocol improvements.

	  If you need to mount to Samba, Azure, Macs or Windows from this machine, say Y.

config CIFS_STATS2
	bool "Extended statistics"
	depends on CIFS
	help
	  Enabling this option will allow more detailed statistics on SMB
	  request timing to be displayed in /proc/fs/cifs/DebugData and also
	  allow optional logging of slow responses to dmesg (depending on the
	  value of /proc/fs/cifs/cifsFYI, see fs/cifs/README for more details).
	  These additional statistics may have a minor effect on performance
	  and memory utilization.

	  Unless you are a developer or are doing network performance analysis
	  or tuning, say N.

config CIFS_ALLOW_INSECURE_LEGACY
	bool "Support legacy servers which use less secure dialects"
	depends on CIFS
	default y
	help
	  Modern dialects, SMB2.1 and later (including SMB3 and 3.1.1), have
	  additional security features, including protection against
	  man-in-the-middle attacks and stronger crypto hashes, so the use
	  of legacy dialects (SMB1/CIFS and SMB2.0) is discouraged.

	  Disabling this option prevents users from using vers=1.0 or vers=2.0
	  on mounts with cifs.ko

	  If unsure, say Y.

config CIFS_WEAK_PW_HASH
	bool "Support legacy servers which use weaker LANMAN security"
	depends on CIFS && CIFS_ALLOW_INSECURE_LEGACY
	help
	  Modern CIFS servers including Samba and most Windows versions
	  (since 1997) support stronger NTLM (and even NTLMv2 and Kerberos)
	  security mechanisms. These hash the password more securely
	  than the mechanisms used in the older LANMAN version of the
	  SMB protocol but LANMAN based authentication is needed to
	  establish sessions with some old SMB servers.

	  Enabling this option allows the cifs module to mount to older
	  LANMAN based servers such as OS/2 and Windows 95, but such
	  mounts may be less secure than mounts using NTLM or more recent
	  security mechanisms if you are on a public network.  Unless you
	  have a need to access old SMB servers (and are on a private
	  network) you probably want to say N.  Even if this support
	  is enabled in the kernel build, LANMAN authentication will not be
	  used automatically. At runtime LANMAN mounts are disabled but
	  can be set to required (or optional) either in
	  /proc/fs/cifs (see fs/cifs/README for more detail) or via an
	  option on the mount command. This support is disabled by
	  default in order to reduce the possibility of a downgrade
	  attack.

	  If unsure, say N.

config CIFS_UPCALL
	bool "Kerberos/SPNEGO advanced session setup"
	depends on CIFS && KEYS
	select DNS_RESOLVER
	help
	  Enables an upcall mechanism for CIFS which accesses userspace helper
	  utilities to provide SPNEGO packaged (RFC 4178) Kerberos tickets
	  which are needed to mount to certain secure servers (for which more
	  secure Kerberos authentication is required). If unsure, say Y.

config CIFS_XATTR
        bool "CIFS extended attributes"
        depends on CIFS
        help
          Extended attributes are name:value pairs associated with inodes by
          the kernel or by users (see the attr(5) manual page for details).
          CIFS maps the name of extended attributes beginning with the user
          namespace prefix to SMB/CIFS EAs.  EAs are stored on Windows
          servers without the user namespace prefix, but their names are
          seen by Linux cifs clients prefaced by the user namespace prefix.
          The system namespace (used by some filesystems to store ACLs) is
          not supported at this time.

          If unsure, say Y.

config CIFS_POSIX
        bool "CIFS POSIX Extensions"
        depends on CIFS && CIFS_ALLOW_INSECURE_LEGACY && CIFS_XATTR
        help
          Enabling this option will cause the cifs client to attempt to
	  negotiate a newer dialect with servers, such as Samba 3.0.5
	  or later, that optionally can handle more POSIX like (rather
	  than Windows like) file behavior.  It also enables
	  support for POSIX ACLs (getfacl and setfacl) to servers
	  (such as Samba 3.10 and later) which can negotiate
	  CIFS POSIX ACL support.  If unsure, say N.

config CIFS_ACL
	  bool "Provide CIFS ACL support"
	  depends on CIFS_XATTR && KEYS
	  help
	    Allows fetching CIFS/NTFS ACL from the server.  The DACL blob
	    is handed over to the application/caller.  See the man
	    page for getcifsacl for more information.  If unsure, say Y.

config CIFS_DEBUG
	bool "Enable CIFS debugging routines"
	default y
	depends on CIFS
	help
	   Enabling this option adds helpful debugging messages to
	   the cifs code which increases the size of the cifs module.
	   If unsure, say Y.
config CIFS_DEBUG2
	bool "Enable additional CIFS debugging routines"
	depends on CIFS_DEBUG
	help
	   Enabling this option adds a few more debugging routines
	   to the cifs code which slightly increases the size of
	   the cifs module and can cause additional logging of debug
	   messages in some error paths, slowing performance. This
	   option can be turned off unless you are debugging
	   cifs problems.  If unsure, say N.

config CIFS_DEBUG_DUMP_KEYS
	bool "Dump encryption keys for offline decryption (Unsafe)"
	depends on CIFS_DEBUG
	help
	   Enabling this will dump the encryption and decryption keys
	   used to communicate on an encrypted share connection on the
	   console. This allows Wireshark to decrypt and dissect
	   encrypted network captures. Enable this carefully.
	   If unsure, say N.

config CIFS_DFS_UPCALL
	  bool "DFS feature support"
	  depends on CIFS && KEYS
	  select DNS_RESOLVER
	  help
	    Distributed File System (DFS) support is used to access shares
	    transparently in an enterprise name space, even if the share
	    moves to a different server.  This feature also enables
	    an upcall mechanism for CIFS which contacts userspace helper
	    utilities to provide server name resolution (host names to
	    IP addresses) which is needed for implicit mounts of DFS junction
	    points. If unsure, say Y.

config CIFS_NFSD_EXPORT
	  bool "Allow nfsd to export CIFS file system"
	  depends on CIFS && BROKEN
	  help
	   Allows NFS server to export a CIFS mounted share (nfsd over cifs)

config CIFS_SMB_DIRECT
	bool "SMB Direct support (Experimental)"
	depends on CIFS=m && INFINIBAND && INFINIBAND_ADDR_TRANS || CIFS=y && INFINIBAND=y && INFINIBAND_ADDR_TRANS=y
	help
	  Enables SMB Direct experimental support for SMB 3.0, 3.02 and 3.1.1.
	  SMB Direct allows transferring SMB packets over RDMA. If unsure,
	  say N.

config CIFS_FSCACHE
	  bool "Provide CIFS client caching support"
	  depends on CIFS=m && FSCACHE || CIFS=y && FSCACHE=y
	  help
	    Makes CIFS FS-Cache capable. Say Y here if you want your CIFS data
	    to be cached locally on disk through the general filesystem cache
	    manager. If unsure, say N.
