Description Petr Matousek 2011-09-14 13:47:10 UTC
Currently, we skip doing the is_path_accessible check in cifs_mount if
there is no prefixpath. There is a report of at least one server however
that allows a TREE_CONNECT to a share that has a DFS referral at its
root. UNC that had no prefixpath was used in that case, so the
is_path_accessible check was not triggered and the box later hit
a BUG() because we were chasing a DFS referral on the root dentry for
the mount.
Upstream fix:



Red Hat would like to thank Yogesh Sharma for reporting this issue.

Comment 3 Petr Matousek 2011-09-14 13:58:39 UTC

This issue affects the Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4,
5, 6, and Red Hat Enterprise MRG. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 is now in Production 3 of the maintenance life-cycle, https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata/, therefore the fix for this issue is not currently planned to be included in the future updates. This has been addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1479.html, https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1465.html, and https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-0010.html.

I believe this also requires:

commit 221d1d797202984cb874e3ed9f1388593d34ee22
cifs: add fallback in is_path_accessible for old servers
