    [PATCH] knfsd: Fix stale file handle problem with subtree_checking.

which fixes a bug in the original patch.

Copying the description from the earlier patch

From: J. Bruce Fields <bfields@citi.umich.edu>

In the typical v2/v3 case the only new filehandles used as arguments to
operations are filehandles taken directly off the wire, which don't get
dentries until fh_verify() is called.

But in v4 the filehandles that are arguments to operations were often
created by previous operations (putrootfh, lookup, etc.) using
fh_compose, which sets the dentry in the filehandle without calling

This also means that, for example, if filesystem B is mounted on filesystem
A, and filesystem A is exported without root-squashing, then a client can
bypass the rootsquashing on B using a compound that starts at a filehandle
in A, crosses into B using lookups, and then does stuff in B.
