I think I've made a mistake: I'm not using CIFS but Samba.

I thought recent versions of Samba were using CIFS but I guess I was wrong.

The issue I'm having is directly with Samba.

To sum up, I can reproduce the bug with any FS mounted over Samba, the
timestamps are not the same when cached and uncached.

Please try this on any Samba exported FS:

touch x; ls --full-time x; sleep 1; ls --full-time x
