Re: [linux-cifs-client] BUG: Possible cifs+IPv6-Regression>

Hello Jeff,

I think I may see the bug...

I think the "addr" struct in cifs_mount is too small for ipv6 addresses.
Here's a proposed patch for 2.6.27.y. Could you apply it and let me
know if it fixes the bug?

Sorry, I was out of town, I'll build a kernel asap.

Stefan confirmed the bug (on i386 platform, apparently x86_64 did not expose the broken behaviour) and the bug fixed at Ubuntu with your patch. See . So I assume he tested it and it fixed the problem, but I'll test as well myself.
