This may come off sounding rude, and I certainly don't intend it to, but
I'm a bit "under the gun" at the moment... do you have a patch or an
alternative I could try for the time being? I'm using Red Hat Enterprise
3, so anything that works with that would be great.

P.S. I've been trying for hours to get CIFS installed, and it's just not
working well. When I make a kernel module for it, I get a few
"unresolved symbol" errors, and when I compile a new kernel, other
things don't work. I also have to stay with my current kernel and not
upgrade to 2.6 for other reasons (unless Red Hat makes an RPM for it...
in which case, I'll give it a shot).
