Description of problem:
Bad: NFS TCP client takes 10 minutes or more to recovery an active socket after 
a NFS server failover.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount a file system using mount option nfsvers=3, proto=tcp (For 
example /test)
2. mount /test
3. cd /test
4. dd if=/dev/zero of=testdata
5. Failover a NFS server.

Actual Results:  It will take 10 to 12 minutes before the nfs client able to 
access the mount point.

Expected Results:  After the NFS server completely failover, NFS client should

There is a patch in 2.5 kernel fixing this particular problem for NFS client. 
RedHat need to port the patch to AS2.1.
