OK, that's not the case, as the two variables used with SEEK_END are both
of type SMB_OFF_T which is defined as int64_t on those platforms that
The code that handles SEEK_END does this:
if (!cli_qfileinfo(&file->srv->cli, file->cli_fd, NULL,
&size, NULL, NULL,
NULL, NULL, NULL))
SMB_BIG_UINT b_size = size;
if (!cli_getattrE(&file->srv->cli, file->cli_fd, NULL,
&b_size, NULL, NULL,
errno = EINVAL;
size = b_size;
file->offset = size + offset;
If either of cli_qfileinfo or cli_getattrE does something wrong with
sizes larger than 4GB, we could have a problem. I haven't looked as yet.
