Bug#920641: cifs: Reading files from samba share with "smb encrypt = mandatory" hangs Applications

Lukas Straub
Source: linux
Version: 4.19.0-1-amd64
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,
Reading from a cifs share "smb encrypt = mandatory" hangs the Application, however ls and writing files works without porblem.
I dont have these Problems with linux 4.18.0-3.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Setup an samba server with a share similar to the following:
[data]  
        smb encrypt = mandatory
        path = /mnt/data
        available = yes
        read only = no
        inherit permissions = yes
        mangled names = no

2. Mount from the client:
$ mount -t cifs //<server>/data /mnt/nas

3. Read something:
cat /mnt/nas/somefile.txt

The cat then hangs instead of displaying the file.

This seems to be fixed in linux 4.19.16-1. At least I could not
reproduce it there.
