Hi Randy,

I've seen indications that the CIFS driver now supports MSDFS resolution via
a userspace upcall, using the cifs.spnego helper included in Samba 3.2.  As
Samba 3.2 is about to be uploaded to unstable, I wonder if you could test
this again to see if it works for you?  I believe you would have to roll
your own kernel image for this; the Debian kernel packages for 2.6.26 will
have DFS upcall support enabled, but that's not yet available in the archive
(but coming soon).
