[linux-cifs-client] Re: [CIFS] patchset to fix ephemeral modes and implement "dynperm" mount option (respin #3)

One question on patch 1 -
if the default file mode (or dir mode) on an inode which is newly
lookedup (not in use) is e.g. 0555 but the file does not have the
read-only dos attribute bit, looks like your code will report it as
0555 - should any of the write bits be set in the mode in this case?
Won't you get strange results if you chmod 0777 (which would work
right...) then umount then mount again then stat?
