Description Fabio Olive Leite 2008-05-10 09:57:21 EDT
Description of problem:

On RHEL-4, latest kernel and nfs-utils package, the logs are filled with the 
error message below while stating a file which has nfsv4 acls set on it and is 
mounted on RHEL-4 client via sec=krb5i.

decode_getfattr: xdr error 13!

We can see that in the RHEL-4 sources (fs/nfs/nfs4xdr.c::decode_getfattr) that 
message comes from an explicit printk, while on RHEL-5 and upstream it is a 
dprintk. It would be interesting to turn that to a dprintk in RHEL-4 as well 
so that we don't scare people and fill up logs unnecessarily.

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


How reproducible:

Always reproduces.

Steps to Reproduce:

Setup a Solaris 10 box as NFS server and a RHEL-4 box as nfs client. Create an 
export on the server containing files with ACLs.

Log on to the RHEL4 client system, run "service rpcgssd restart" and mount the 
share from the server:

# mount -t nfs4 solaris:/export /nfs4 -o sec=krb5i

Run "ls -l /nfs4"

Check /var/log/messages and see the errors.

Actual results:

Error messages flood the logs and console.

Expected results:

Error messages should be printed only when debug is turned on.
