[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#946419: samba-vfs-modules: Resource forks are truncated when written to fruit-enabled share

Package: samba-vfs-modules
Version: 2:4.11.1+dfsg-3
Severity: important

I use vfs_fruit with a Samba share serving various older versions of Mac OS X, from 10.6 up through 10.11, archiving classic Mac files dating back to the mid 80s. With the latest Samba 4.11.1 in Debian testing, writing one of these older files with a resource fork larger than 64K results in the resource fork portion getting truncated to 65454 bytes on the server end. This corrupts old Mac files with resource forks larger than 64K-- executables are the most affected by this, but graphic files such as PICT are too.

Looks like this is a regression, as this issue does not occur in 4.9.5 from Debian stable.

Repro steps:
1) Copy a classic 68K Mac OS application > 65K from a Mac OS X 10.11 client to a Samba 4.9.5 host. (I used ircle 1.5.6 as a test case here.)
2) Get Info on the newly-copied file on the 4.9.5 server and observe that the application's size matches that of the original file on the client.

3) Observe the same in Finder.

4) Copy the same application from the same Mac OS X 10.11 client to a Samba 4.11.1 host.
5) Get Info on the newly-copied file on the 4.11.1 server and observe that the application's size has been truncated.

My smb.conf from testparm (identical on both test hosts above except for the name of the share which should reflect the Samba version)-- /srv/test is 0777 on both host filesystems (ext4):
