Because it's lighter weight, CIFS tries to do a QPathInfo call with an
infolevel of SMB_QUERY_FILE_INTERNAL_INFO to verify the accessibility of
the root inode. It then falls back to using an infolevel of

There's a problem however. SMB_QUERY_FILE_INTERNAL_INFO isn't as well
supported by all servers as SMB_QUERY_FILE_ALL_INFO is, and the error
returns from those servers aren't well standardized. I have at least one
report of a server that returns NT_STATUS_INTERNAL_ERROR (which
translates to EIO) rather than something that translates to EOPNOTSUPP.

Given that that function only gets called at mount time, I think it's
better to do this as simply as possible. Rather than trying to be
clever, just have is_path_accessible use SMB_QUERY_FILE_ALL_INFO. That
call is widely supported and it shouldn't increase the overhead

Unfortunately, the reporter of this problem doesn't seem to be in a
hurry to test it, so I don't have any test results from it. Given what I
see in the captures though, I expect that this will fix the problem.
