This check looks redundant to me. We could remove it since the check in
coalesce_t2 is more accurate...

It shouldn't be possible. The CIFSFindFirst request sends this:

pSMB->MaxDataCount = cpu_to_le16(CIFSMaxBufSize & 0xFFFFFF00);
...which should ensure that the amount of data in the response is less
than CIFSMaxBufSize. I'm not sure what the point of the mask is there
however...

In addition, we're also limited by this:

pSMB->SearchCount = cpu_to_le16(CIFSMaxBufSize/sizeof(FILE_UNIX_INFO));

...but I think we ought to consider just setting that to 0xffff.
Dividing by sizeof(FILE_UNIX_INFO) is clearly wrong for other
infolevels. We don't really care how many entries the server sends as
long as it doesn't exceed the buffer size.

Either way, I believe this patch is correct, though we may have some
other cleanup work to do in this area.
