SubjectRe: sym/ncr53c8xx phase error still present in 2.2.7
Since I only have the problem with FAT/SMBFS  maybe the following which was posted
today is relevant, I will check it out.


> The only change since v16:
> Fix for Microsoft idiocy wrt so-called FAT32. Actually it's FAT28.
> In other words, upper 4 bits of FAT entry are "reserved and undefined".
> I.e. contain random garbage. Fix: in fat_access() &=0xfffffff before any
> further tests.
> If you've seen random "attempt to access beyond end of device" on
> FAT filesystems that were OK from the Windows POV - see if this patch will
> fix the situation.

> Patch lives on ftp.math.psu.edu/pub/viro/fat-patch-17.gz
> Cheers,
