Can you apply the attached and rebuild your kernel - does it work then?

patch to possibly fix samba/kernel interaction
Yes, the patch solves the problem.
Tested with patch applied to 2.2.18 stock kernel, not RH 2.2.17-4. I'm assuming that you will get the updated entry points to the proper kernel folks, but
let me know if you are not planning to and I will send them the update.
This got fixed in both the 2.4.0 rawhide kernels and whatever the
last 2.2 one we built was.
