The "\xFFSMB" string would be in bytes 4..7.  The first four bytes (0..3)  
are the message length, which should always be -le the negotiated buffer
size.  My memory of the discussion at the CIFS conference was that the
initial check simply validates the length to insure that the packet is
sane.  Checking for the "\xFFSMB" string would happen after the length
