A while ago I saw this patch on usenet to fix a problem in the stable
kernel series with smbfs. The problem is that, even with the Win95

smbfs code, but I couldn't find a maintainer. So, attached is a patch
to fix this problem. It turns out that there was a bug in the bug fix
(a misplaced "}"). If possible, could this be incorporated into the
