Description Dave Chinner 2010-09-13 05:37:14 UTC
Description of problem:

RHEL 5.x has a different open-by-handle path to rhel6/mainline and so the backport of the untrusted inode lookup patches failed to update this path. Hence local handle lookups were not being checked correctly. This was not picked up during initial testing as the tests are affected by timing and not always guarantee to fail.

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

rhel 5.6

How reproducible:

Reproduced in QA. See bug 624366.
