      keepalive (G)
             The value of the parameter (an integer) represents the number of
             seconds between _�k_�e_�e_�p_�a_�l_�i_�v_�e packets. If this parameter is zero, no
             keepalive  packets  will  be  sent.  Keepalive packets, if sent,
             allow the server to tell whether a client is still  present  and
             Keepalives should, in general, not be needed if the socket being
             used has the  SO_KEEPALIVE  attribute  set  on  it  (see  _�s_�o_�c_�k_�e_�t
             _�o_�p_�t_�i_�o_�n_�s).  Basically  you  should  only  use  this option if you
             strike difficulties.
             Default: _�k_�e_�e_�p_�a_�l_�i_�v_�e = 300
             Example: _�k_�e_�e_�p_�a_�l_�i_�v_�e = 600

kernel change notify

      kernel change notify (G)
             This parameter specifies whether Samba should ask the kernel for
             change  notifications  in  directories  so  that SMB clients can
             refresh whenever the data on the server changes.
             This parameter is only used when  your  kernel  supports  change
             notification to user programs, using the F_NOTIFY fcntl.
             Default: _�k_�e_�r_�n_�e_�l _�c_�h_�a_�n_�g_�e _�n_�o_�t_�i_�f_�y = yes

kernel oplocks

      kernel oplocks (G)
             For  UNIXes  that  support  kernel based _�o_�p_�l_�o_�c_�k_�s (currently only
             IRIX and the Linux 2.4 kernel), this parameter allows the use of
             them to be turned on or off.
             Kernel  oplocks support allows Samba _�o_�p_�l_�o_�c_�k_�s  to be broken when-
             ever a local UNIX process or NFS operation accesses a file  that
             s�sm�mb�bd�d(8)  has  oplocked.  This  allows  complete data consistency
             between SMB/CIFS, NFS and local file access (and is a v�ve�er�ry�y  cool
             feature :-).
             This  parameter  defaults to o�on�n, but is translated to a no-op on
             systems that no not  have  the  necessary  kernel  support.  You
             should never need to touch this parameter.
             Default: _�k_�e_�r_�n_�e_�l _�o_�p_�l_�o_�c_�k_�s = yes
