Description Jeff Layton 2008-10-01 15:36:05 EDT
Placeholder bug for the CIFS backport for 5.4. There are already some patches that have gone upstream that we'll want. My goal this time around is to keep my test kernels reasonably up to date with respect to upstream code (and with patches that I have queued for upstream).
Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2009-02-16 10:32:38 EST
Updating PM score.

Comment 26 Sandro Mathys 2009-07-23 09:44:07 EDT
I didn't have time to set up any RHEL 5.4 beta system yet, but what I can say is that the kernel from [1] does not fix bz484193 (on RHEL 5.3 Server i386).

Comment 27 Jeff Layton 2009-07-23 10:01:59 EDT
Ok, do you happen to have a copy of the oops message from such a crash? Could you also test the kernels on my people.redhat.com page and let me know if they fix it?

Comment 28 Sandro Mathys 2009-07-23 10:15:58 EDT
Sorry, my bad - I should have been a bit more clearly.

There's no oops with the above mentioned kernel (but there's a oops with the kernel on your page which I tried as well). There's just that mount error msg 

mount error 66 = Object is remote

That's what I meant with my bugreport not being fixed - I didn't open the bug because I wanted the oops being extinguished but because I actually want to mount that share...and that's what still doesn't work.
Comment 29 Jeff Layton 2009-07-23 10:28:13 EDT
Ok, that's expected behavior for the 5.4 kernel -- bug 484193 is specifically about an oops when mounting. Support for chasing DFS referrals at mount time is targeted for 5.5.

If you see an oops with the kernels on my people.redhat.com page though, could you open a new bug for it (and post the oops message there)? If you do this, please cc me on the bug so that I can pick it up.
