That would be the one mentioned in the subject line of this thread :)
However, a working backport of that fix is not available for 4.4 and
4.9, hence the trouble.

It looks like we are reconstructing elements of this email thread all
over again, so let me quickly summarize the status so far:

In 4.14/4.15/mainline,
- commit 0603c96f3af50e2f9 (SMB: Validate negotiate (to protect against
downgrade) even if signing off) caused mount regression with SMB v3.

- commit 4587eee04e2ac7ac3 (SMB3: Validate negotiate request must
always be signed) fixed the issue.

- [ There was a lot of code churn in the CIFS/SMB codebase between
these two commits in mainline. ]

In this email thread, you backported the fix to stable 4.13. Thomas
noticed that the problematic commit had also made it to stable series
such as 4.4 and 4.9, and requested a backport of the fix to those
trees as well. However, a straight-forward backport of the fix to 4.4
and 4.9 breaks the build, so no fix was available for those kernels.

I investigated this and tried to produce a working backport of the fix
to 4.4 and 4.9, but didn't succeed, despite trying several variations
as well as suggestions from Aurelien [1][2]. So, given that there is
still no known fix for the mount regression on 4.4 and 4.9 stable
series at this point, I decided to request a revert of the problematic
commit that caused the regression in those kernels.
