Subjectsmbfs and failed nls translations

[PATCH] smbfs nls oops fix

Fixes smbfs oopsing on failed nls translations and maps unknown
chars to
:#### strings. Also PATHLEN vs NAMELEN mixups.

Hi, apparently my smbfs mounts have had failed nls translations, but I
didn't know it -- never saw any warnings. So when I upgraded to 2.5.6 that
included this patch, the filenames on my samba mounts all turned into
"x00:x00..." etc. ;-)

Turning off CONFIG_SMB_NLS_DEFAULT produces a different, but still failing,

How can I get samba working again? What am I doing wrong? And, why is samba
so stingy with the error messages in this case?

Thanks -- Regards -- Andy
