If you have the proposed patches that apply on 4.9, I'd be happy to
try them out!

[ I would have offered to backport the patches myself, but actually I
already tried doing that with a larger set of patches from mainline
(picking those commits between the regression and the fix that seemed
relevant), but I felt quite out-of-depth trying to adapt them to 4.9
and 4.4, as I'm not that familiar with the internals of SMB/CIFS. ]

Yep!
