Fixed In Version: kernel-2.6.32-279.9.1.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Due to a missing return statement, the nfs_attr_use_mounted_on_file() function returned a wrong value. As a consequence, redundant ESTALE errors could potentially be returned. This update adds the proper return statement to nfs_attr_use_mounted_on_file(), thus preventing this bug. Note that this bug only affected NFS version 4 file systems.
