This commit and this one on vlc-3.0 : https://git.videolan.org/?p=vlc/vlc-3.0.git;a=commit;h=3dfa6d4ddd0922552e6575ded416f62b8ce828f5 are making the smb2 module ultra slow, around 10 times slower.
The read size requested by prefetch is really big. This make probing / seek ultra slow since a lot of small read() are executed (reproduced with mkv and mp4).
So, I have one big question: Is the smb2 module supposed to not listen to the size argument and always read a smaller size ?
How can I decide the read size then ? Should this size be decided by the core of cache modules instead (like before) ?
PS: There is not the same problem with the libdsm module since the max read size is caped inside libdsm.
