Any thoughts on what is the right fix for stable kernels? Mounting SMB3 shares works great on mainline (v4.15-rc5). It also works on 4.4.109 if I pass the sec=ntlmsspi option to the mount command (as opposed to the default: sec=ntlmssp). Please let me know if you need any other info.
Make sure you have (in that order):
db3b5474f462 ("CIFS: Fix NULL pointer deref on SMB2_tcon() failure") fe83bebc0522 ("SMB: fix leak of validate negotiate info response buffer") a2d9daad1d2d ("SMB: fix validate negotiate info uninitialised memory use") 4587eee04e2a ("SMB3: Validate negotiate request must always be signed") a821df3f1af7 ("cifs: fix NULL deref in SMB2_read")
Does enabling CIFS_SMB311 changes anything?
I also suspect some things assume encryption patches are in.
