[Samba] Revisiting SMB and SMP

Hi Samba List,
I did a little sniffing around for issues between samba and SMP, but
didn't seem to come across any that dealt with the behavior I'm seeing.
The general question is: Does samba work correctly in an SMP
environment? Apparently OOB it doesn't...but is there a way to make it
The specifics of my situation are as follows:
- Custom-built Debian Sarge kernel-2.6.8
-- Support for 4 cpus (2 HT Xeons, which each appear as 2 cpus)
-- samba is compiled-in on my most recent attempt
- When booting a non-SMP kernel, samba works flawlessly.
- When booting the SMP kernel, samba loses its ability to create or
modify files, spitting out input/output errors, such as the following
samus:/mnt/smb/file-serv/george# touch testfile
touch: setting times of `testfile': Input/output error
(names have been changed to protect the guilty)
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I would enjoy being able to
utilize the benefits of both SMP and SMB.
