Compatibilty script for policy/protocols/smb?

Upgrading between master builds I just ran into this:

fatal error in /bro/share/bro/site/local.bro, line 88: can't open /bro/share/bro/policy/protocols/smb/__load__.bro

I see in NEWS we have

- The SMB scripts in policy/protocols/smb are now moved into base/protocols/smb
  and loaded/enabled by default.

But should there be an empty script in there or something that does a reporter warning telling people to update local.bro?

Thanks for pointing that out.

I'll put a placeholder at the old policy/ location, but also call out
in NEWS that such @loads can be removed from local.bro or other custom

Or let me know if there's other ideas.

Sounds good to me.

I was curious why this test didn't catch this:


but the file as shipped was

# Uncomment the following line to enable the SMB analyzer. The analyzer
# is currently considered a preview and therefore not loaded by default.
# @load policy/protocols/smb

so while 2.6 would have been compatible with the 2.5 config as it was distributed, it would have broken anyone that uncommented the line.
