SubjectBug in date converting functions DOS<=>UNIX in FAT, NCPFS and SMBFS drivers
Hello!

I have found a bug in drivers of file systems which use a DOS-like format
of date (16 bit: years since 1980 - 7 bits, month - 4 bits, day - 5 bits).

There are two problems:
1) It is unable to convert UNIX-like dates before 1980 to DOS-like date format.
2) VFAT for example have three kinds of dates: creation date, modification date
and access date. Sometimes one of these dates is set to zero (which indicates
that this date is not set). Zero is not a valid date (e.g. months are
numbered from one, not from zero) and can't be properly converted to
UNIX-like format of date (it was converted to date before 1980).

I have found FAT, NCPFS and SMBFS drivers subject to this problems. Patch for
fixing these bugs attached.

Also I have a question about VFAT file system. VFAT have not access time fields
in directory entries but it has access date fields. Currently information about
the time of last access is not supported for VFAT file system in LINUX. Is this
correct? Maybe access time should be truncated to days.

Thank you.
