nsmb -- kernel SMB protocol communicator
This virtual device is used by SMBFS filesystem for actual communication
with SMB servers. It provides the physical transportation, encapsulating
the networking part of SMBFS. Only SMB over TCP/IP is supported at this
moment, SMB over NetBIOS is not supported.
For the SMBFS kernel support to work, it's necessary to have both this
pseudo-device and file-system SMBFS configured into kernel.
This driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.4. In NetBSD, this first
appeared in NetBSD 2.0, together with rest of SMBFS support.
