Description Andy Adamson 2012-03-06 17:58:12 EST
Description of problem:

If we know that the delegation stateid is bad or revoked, we need to
remove that delegation as soon as possible, and then mark all the
stateids that relied on that delegation for recovery. We cannot use
the delegation as part of the recovery process.

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

How reproducible:
100% with the ability for the admin to revoke a stateid on the NFSv4.0/v4.1 server

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a file with a delegation
2. Perform I/O - READ the file
3. During I/O revoke the delegation stated
Actual results:
A READ will return with NFS4ERR_BAD_STATEID. The client will start the recovery process, but it will not complete.  Either the client will hang, or the READ will be resent with the revoked stateid, and the application will see an input/output error.

Expected results:
With this patch, the (possibly a delegation) stateid is recovered via an OPEN with CLAIM_NULL, the READ is resent with the new stateid and all is well.

Additional info:

Here is the upstream patch queued for stable:

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-05-03 01:19:13 EDT
Since RHEL 6.3 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
