Subject[PATCH] Bug in date converting functions DOS<=>UNIX in FAT, NCPFS and SMBFS drivers [second attempt]
Hello!

Few weeks ago I have sent the following letter:

As I see now in 2.2.18pre24 NCPFS is fixed but VFAT and SMBFS doesn't. (This
happened because the maintainer of NCPFS resent my patch to Alan Cox but only the
part of patch related to NCPFS). So I resent you patch for VFAT and SMBFS attached
to this letter.

Thank you.
