Hi Shaw,

Using -f 3666 should enable both the w95 base workaround and the core getattr
option. The selection code looks like this:#ifdef CONFIG_SMB_WIN95
mnt->version |= SMB_FIX_WIN95;
mnt->file_mode &= (S_IRWXU | S_IRWXG | S_IRWXO);
mnt->file_mode |= S_IFREG;
mnt->dir_mode &= (S_IRWXU | S_IRWXG | S_IRWXO);
mnt->dir_mode |= S_IFDIR;
sb->u.smbfs_sb.mnt = mnt;
* Display the enabled options
if (mnt->version & SMB_FIX_WIN95)
printk("SMBFS: Win 95 bug fixes enabled\n");
if (mnt->version & SMB_FIX_OLDATTR)
printk("SMBFS: Using core getattr (Win 95 speedup)\n");
so you should see _both_ messages.

The SMB_FIX_OLDATTR flag was supposed to be an optional speed-up at the
expense of less information. Are you saying w95 works only if this is
