Supported is only the Microsoft NFS client. It has a specific API
to allow reading and writing native symlinks. This works automatically,
independent of the "winsymlink" option. If it doesn't work for you,
you either don't use the Microsoft NFS client, or you're actually
accessing the remote share via SMB, not via NFS.
