The lengthfix patch I mentioned is just to work around what I suspect is a
kernel bug, but could be a documented change of semantics for all I know.

The ncpfs kernel patches are separate, and required to support new options:

+bool ' Packet singatures' CONFIG_NCPFS_PACKET_SIGNING
+bool ' Proprietary file locking' CONFIG_NCPFS_IOCTL_LOCKING
+bool ' Clear remove/delete inhibit when needed' CONFIG_NCPFS_STRONG
+bool ' Use NFS namespace if available' CONFIG_NCPFS_NFS_NS
+bool ' Use LONG (OS/2) namespace if available' CONFIG_NCPFS_OS2_NS
+bool ' Allow mounting of volume subdirectories' CONFIG_NCPFS_MOUNT_SUBDIR
