Apologies for not being clear and informative in the previous comment. Yes even in the debian samba package, the error is seen for vfat only - not for ext2/3.
My preliminary opinion is that the issue is with respect to the way samba is currently handling large file transfers for vfat file systems and hence not necessarily a vfat issue. But as it is seen only on ARM platform, maybe something going haywire while handling large files because of some ARM specific peculiarities like alignment issues etc.?
