BUG: Possible cifs+IPv6-Regression ->

From: Bernhard Schmidt

first off, this might be an Ubuntu regression and I've also opened a
bugreport there, but I think it is in mainline as well. Maybe someone
familiar with the code can see the problem at first glance without too
much debugging.

Since quite a while I've been mounting my CIFS fileserver at home
(running Samba 3.2) using IPv6 transport:

# mount -t cifs -o user=berni,ip=2001:xxx::yy //fileserv/pub /pub

This used to work fine with the Ubuntu kernel 2.6.27-9, which according
to the changelog is Ubuntu kernel 2.6.27-11 (currently
in the -proposed repository, so not rolled out yet, appears to be based
on throws a BUG in my face (and does not mount, obviously).
Since according to the Ubuntu changelog the only changes in cifs have
been the ones in -stable to, namely

* cifs: Reduce number of socket retries in large write path
* cifs: Fix error in smb_send2
* cifs: Fix cifs reconnection flags
* cifs: remove unused list, add new cifs sock list to prepare for
mount/umount fix
* cifs: clean up server protocol handling
* cifs: disable sharing session and tcon and add new TCP sharing code
* cifs: reinstate sharing of SMB sessions sans races
* cifs: minor cleanup to cifs_mount
* cifs: reinstate sharing of tree connections
* cifs: Fix build break
* cifs: Fix check for tcon seal setting and fix oops on failed mount
from earlier patch
* cifs: prevent cifs_writepages() from skipping unwritten pages
* cifs: fix check for dead tcon in smb_init

I assume it's an upstream problem.

Do you need any further information? As far as I can see the Ubuntu
Jaunty packaged version of 2.6.28 works fine, but I did not run
extensive tests on it.
