Subject[Bug 765] New: smbfs segfault when mounting mountpoint that is in use(?)

Summary: smbfs segfault when mounting mountpoint that is in
Kernel Version: 2.5.70-mm1
Status: NEW
Severity: normal

Hardware Environment:Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600, mounting smbfs system from
Debian 2.4.20-xfs-rmap15f machine
Software Environment:xmms, smbfs, xfs filesystem
Problem Description: Kernel segfault when I mount an smbfs mount while the
mountpoint may have a file open

Steps to reproduce:

Package: smbfs
Version: 2.999+3.0.alpha24-3
Severity: normal

I can duplicate this about 60% of the time -- however, once it hangs, anything
dealing with the mounted filesystem will cause the process to hang. Kill -9
mount.smbfs has no result. (it was mentioned in an old bug report for smbfs
dealing with 2.2/potato)

ls /music and df both hang when accessing the samba partition.

Much harder to duplicate is disconnecting the network connection to the other
machine after it has been mounted, but before any files have been requested. I
can get it to do that perhaps 1% of the time.

Both errors started after I upgraded from 2.4.20 to 2.5.70-mm1. According to
the userland utils, no recent updates have been made.

How it happens:

I have a laptop with wifi, and of course the samba filesystem doesn't mount
during bootup (probably a config issue on my part). I start xmms without
having the samba filesystem mounted and it starts playing, however every
file in the playlist cannot be found. While it is going through that, I mount
the filesystem. When the system is mounted, there is a 60/40 chance that it
will segfault.

In 2.4 it seemed to work fine, however, I do keep somewhat current with apt-get
upgrades, so I don't know if there was a recent samba upgrade that happened
since I upgraded to 2.5. (NOTE, smbfs guys claim it is a kernel bug, not a
userspace bug)

Error in dmesg:
