May it be possible, that this issue is related to the one described in:

We had detailed information about the issue depending obviously on a bug
in the Natapp Firmware, but the only thing we got from Netapp was the
attitude to have it in mind when releasing the next Version.
Remember: Linux ist not a supported client-platform in the eyes of
Netapp (!!!)

Until then, the only way to get around it is to patch the misc.c in the
cifs stack as describes by Jeff Layton in comment 5.

Best regards
