Did I say "btw." lately?

Btw., it's *much* faster accessing the same dir as NFS share than
accessing it as Samba share.  I ran this command:

  time ls -lR > /dev/null

on the same machine against the Cygwin build tree on the same remote
Linux server a couple of times.

On the Samba share:

  real    0m42.860s
  user    0m0.078s
  sys     0m22.171s

On the NFS share:

  real    0m8.921s
  user    0m0.062s
  sys     0m7.436s
