I though that was the issue (blksize was set incorrectly, and cifs was 
returning an expected error condition on filldir back to the user 
incorrectly) was fixed in the Fedora kernel, and it should not be an issue 
in mainline.

For mainline:

fixed the immediate issue, and then 


set the blocksize properly.

Not sure how to workaround this - but directories of less than about 120 
entries were fine.
