Apologies for not being clear and informative in the previous comment.
Yes even in the debian samba package, the error is seen for vfat only - not
My preliminary opinion is that the issue is with respect to the way samba is
currently handling large file transfers for vfat file systems and hence not
necessarily a vfat issue.
But as it is seen only on ARM platform, maybe something going haywire while
handling large files because of some ARM specific peculiarities like
alignment issues etc.?
