OK, downloaded the 2.2.17 kernel, patched it to 18pre9, compiled it to floppy
and re-booted from floppy. Unfortunately the smbfs problem is still there. It
just doesn't want to read all the files on large shared directories from our
OS2 (Warp4) server.

Oh! There's a lot of message pairs like this :

kernel: smb_receive_trans2: copied, parms=4079 of 4079, data=220 of 4079
kernel: smb_receive_trans2: copied, parms=4079 of 4079, data=4079 of 4079

Since they didn't say anything like "ERROR", I was ignoring them. Could that
"data=220 of 4079" have anything to do with the missing files?

Anyway, the kernel recompile went reasonably well, so if there's any new smbfs
beta code that might help, I'm more than willing to give it a try.
