Is this doing 'ls' on a windows filesystem?
If so, I don't see how it's related to the new kernel. That's (in my
experience) controlled by how you mount it. If it's mounted as an msdos
filesystem, try mounting as vfat instead.
But, I think you mean something different, since the funky windows crunching
of long names down to dos 8+3 isn't usually called truncation.
So, if what I said above is hogwash, then we need to know how you are seeing
the filenames (eg 'ls' or some kind of file drowser), and an example or two of
