Going to 2.6.27 (and just trying, two VERY weird problems.
1) Samba boot using the kernel (or .0 before), I can no longer mount any file systems from my windows client. 2) My root disk comes up READ-ONLY. It uses XFS.

Most likely is that the Samba problem will be caused by the smbd
not being able to write to it's databases when clients try
to connect because of the read-only root fs.
