I see, thanks for the clarification. It seems that you have some kind of
a problem with your setup, be it a misconfiguration or a CIFS client
Unfortunately, we can't remove stat calls from mc: it basically uses it
for everything in the world, i.e. mode & ownership information, access &
modification times, sizes, etc.
I think that it's most promising for you to try to find out why these
calls take so long and fix your setup (or else good luck trying to patch
stat calls out of mc, look for the mc_stat function), and this report
should rather be rejected.
