Description Steve Dickson 2005-09-24 13:55:49 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050909 Fedora/1.7.10-1.3.2

Description of problem:
nfs_readpage_release() causes an oops while accessing a file with NFS
debugging turned on (echo 32767 > /proc/sys/sunrpc/nfs_debug) and a kernel

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo 32767 > /proc/sys/sunrpc/nfs_debug
2. read a file from an NFS filesystem

Actual Results:  the system oops

Expected Results:  The read shold work

Additional info:

The upstream patch:
This patch moves the debugging statement above nfs_release_request() to
avoid accessing freed memory.
