Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 164574
nfs/rsync caching problems

Escalated to Bugzilla from IssueTracker
Using the standalone versions of the LLNL nfs regression tests
(in bug 159994) I tried to verify that these patches would help with
any cache consistency issue in RHEL3 U6.
What I found was "right out of the box" U6 passed all the LLNL
regression test. Then when I added the nfs-cto-lookup-revalidate.patch
and pathname-retry.patch (which are a backport of how 2.6 handles ESTALE
errors) one of the regression tests (nfs_name_test) started to fail with
ESTALES... which is an obvious regression of where U6 is today...
So I'm going to close this bug as NOTABUG until a reproducer
comes along and proves that thats patches are needed.
SteveD switched the disposition to WONTFIX just afterwards.
