Description Rob Kenna 2008-04-30 13:54:10 EDT
NFSv4 provides for file delegation wherein a portion of an exported mount can be
redirected for service by an alternate system in the cluster.  bug 433256 asks
for GFS2 support and set lease support and has proposed patches.  This BZ is
intended for just the GFS2 portion.

Why do we need this bug? So far as I know the original bug was all GFS2 stuff
anyway and the only reason that it hadn't been submitted was that it was
rejected from 5.2 so that it just needs resubmitting for 5.3 and the other bug
can be put back in POST. This one can probably be closed I think.
Comment 2 Rob Kenna 2008-05-01 07:36:46 EDT
I was under the impression that there was a bit of kernel work that was fs
generic and the the GFS2 (& GPFS) work was separate.  If I'm wrong on this count
I have no problem with closing this as a dup.
