Description Ralph Böhme 2016-09-14 10:52:30 UTC
Some VFS modules like GPFS will always return success from SMB_VFS_GET_DOS_ATTRIBUTES() but only set a subset of the attributes. It neither sets FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL nor FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY.

We already handle the case that the VFS stack returns with result==0 and then add the FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL, regardless of the type of the filesystem object.

Have patch, need bug number.
