Description mburton 1999-09-15 10:04:54 EDT
On a disk mounted over nfs, the following fails

tmp:touch foo
tmp:cat foo
tmp:rm foo
tmp:mknod foo p
tmp:cat foo

This should block, but the filetype for foo does not seem to
be updated in the kernal, so cat foo returns straight away

Hope this helps,

Fixed in later kernel nfs but nobody closed the bug
