Public bug reported:

16.04 x64 with 4.4.0-112 or 4.4.0-116 - cannot traverse a DFS link for a
cifs.mount from windows if vers is anything other than 1.0 default.
(This submission was from a 112 host, but it's confirmed to still exist
on anything less than 4.11.)

Fix exists in 4.13.x in Ubuntu 18.x and works fine.

Issue is that once you mount with vers=2 or greater, you cannot traverse
the dfs root directory to any file server, and you cannot mount the dfs
path directly - only a direct mount to the backend fileservers will

Requesting a backport of the fix as described below as this makes it
impossible to move forward with security action disabling SMB1 on our
windows environment. If we do that now, will be unable to use that
storage from all of our windows systems without directly mapping to
individual file servers.


Aurelien Aptel (3):
  CIFS: set SERVER_NAME_LENGTH to serverName actual size
  CIFS: make IPC a regular tcon
  CIFS: use tcon_ipc instead of use_ipc parameter from SMB2_ioctl

It's unclear if this should be treated as a security issue since it's
not directly a security problem itself, but rather prevents taking
security related action.
