[Bug 871747] Re: "invalid argument" accessing files on hgfs after modified on host

Recently I've reverted to a 2.6.32 kernel in oneiric under vmware.  This
is not that fun but was the only way I could work around another very
annoying regression that I documented in bug 941945.

Since reverting to 2.6.32 I've also gone back to using hgfs, and have
not seen the "invalid argument" issue.

[Another workaround I tried for a while is to use the older method of
SMB mounting the host filesystem; this also seemed to work fine even
with the regular oneiric kernel.  Details in the vmware communities
thread linked in the bug desc.]
