Description Chuck Lever 2013-10-28 12:12:32 EDT
Description of problem:

At the NFS bake-a-thon last month we discussed the possibility of adding junction resolution support to RHEL 6 nfs-utils.  Here are the upstream commits I believe are necessary to enable junction resolution support in mountd.

Please see upstream commits 11d4f1d2, dbc0b5e8, 9fae1474, 8b15252e, 88f0f36a, fb62e4dc, a8dcaa28, d6979553, ab74900f, and 73840ef6.

This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
