Actually...that patch is off by 4 bytes. Since we're so late in the
cycle too, we should probably keep extraneous changes to a minimum.
I'll probably propose this patch for 3.2 once you've tested it, and
will spin up a patch to clean up coalesce_t2 for 3.3.

If you're already testing the other one, then it's probably good enough
to verify the fix. If you haven't tested it yet though, then you should
probably test this one instead. Either way, let me know soon if you can
so we can get this into 3.2.

---------------------------[snip]----------------------------

[PATCH] cifs: fix bad buffer length check in coalesce_t2

The current check looks to see if the RFC1002 length is larger than
CIFSMaxBufSize and fails if it is. The buffer is actually larger than
that by MAX_CIFS_HDR_SIZE. Fix the check so that it doesn't fail due
to this.

This bug has been around for a long time, but the fact that we used to
cap the clients MaxBufferSize at the same level as the server tended
to paper over it. Commit c974befa changed that however.
