Subject[122/129] cifs: lower default wsize when unix extensions are not used
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

commit ce91acb3acae26f4163c5a6f1f695d1a1e8d9009 upstream.

We've had some reports of servers (namely, the Solaris in-kernel CIFS
server) that don't deal properly with writes that are "too large" even
though they set CAP_LARGE_WRITE_ANDX. Change the default to better
mirror what windows clients do.
