I'm not seeing that. If you look at commit 02ef04e432ba, you'll see
that Chuck did add a 'padding term' to decode_readdir_maxsz in the
NFSv4 case.
The other thing to remember is that a readdir 'dirlist4' entry is
always word aligned (irrespective of the length of the filename), so
there is no padding that needs to be taken into account.

I think we probably rather want to look at how auth->au_ralign is being
calculated for the case of krb5i. I'm really not understanding why
auth->au_ralign should not take into account the presence of the mic.
Chuck?
