Subject[patch] smbfs update for 2.2.18-pre[12]


Patch vs pre1 but also applies vs pre2:

Changes are mostly from 2.4.0-test7:
* proc.c: add back lanman2 support (OS/2 and others)
* proc.c: check length of paths to avoid buffer overflow
* proc.c: don't do interruptable_sleep in smb_retry to avoid signal
* proc.c: O_RDONLY & smb_revalidate_inode fix (tail -f)
* proc.c: add nls support
* sock.c: attempt to fix smb_data_callback (avoid infinite loop)

The lanman2 is a partial undo of some changes made for 2.2.16 that caused
problems for OS/2 users.

"attempt to fix" should perhaps now be "appears to fix". A problem with
lockups (infinite loop with BKL held?) that appears to go away. But the
debug outputs haven't told us why. Doing while(1) after a lock_kernel()
seems dangerous anyway.
