SubjectRe: third patch
Jeff and I have worked on a series of patches to fix the oopses,
memory corruption and mount failures due to races in various linked
list handling relating to socket, session and tree connection when
using the reproducer detailed here:

The fix series is now merged into cifs-2.6.git

Thanks to Jeff for great work. It took quite a while to work through,
and I worked hard on an approach to make it smaller, but eventually we
decided that a larger fix was better.
