I tracked it as far as an ioctl call for creating what looks like a
protocol block. I don't have the time to trace into the kernel right
now, and it doesn't look like anything in the smbtools userland has
changed in quite a while.
Can we assume that you checked the obvious things, like making sure
that the system isn't running out of memory? Does this happen with a
GENERIC kernel? Are you sure the kernel matches the userland? Also
let us know if you can recall when it stopped working.
And for what it's worth, I don't get such an error on -STABLE.
