severity 267766 important

I am downgrading this bug because so far it seems to have only been
reported with 2.4.20 kernels, which are not supported in either sarge
*or* woody.  The kernels provided in woody are 2.4.18+security fixes,
and the kernels shipped with sarge will be either 2.4.26 or 2.4.27.

Using 2.4.20 is strongly discouraged regardless of samba's behavior, as
this kernel contains various known security bugs.

What are your reasons for not being able to upgrade the kernel on the
affected machine, if I may ask?

I don't think that working around buggy sendfile implementations in
kernels not shipping with sarge should be release-critical for sarge, in
any case; kernels are a rather special case of "allows partial
upgrades", because it can't be addressed with versioned dependencies.
