SubjectRe: 2.1.79 + latest smbfs patch
Date
Hi,

And what about the size mismatch between libc5 and libc6's uid_t, gid_t
and mode_t? If nothing is done the kernel will receive the wrong
parameters to the mount() call.

smbmount uses the following structure defined in linux/smb_mount.h:

struct smb_mount_data {
int version;
uid_t mounted_uid; /* Who may umount() this filesystem? */
uid_t uid;
gid_t gid;
mode_t file_mode;
mode_t dir_mode;
};
Unless this structure is changed to (for example):

struct smb_mount_data {
int version;
__kernel_uid_t mounted_uid;
__kernel_uid_t uid;
__kernel_gid_t gid;
__kernel_mode_t file_mode;
__kernel_mode_t dir_mode;
};
everything will be screwed up. (there are other places in the kernel include
files where something similar must be done).

Saludos,

E.-
