patch against fuse fedpkg repo to add upstream patch
Description of problem:
We use sshfs mounted home directories, and we were finding that sshfs would mysteriously crash. Examining the core dump revealed that there was a missing pointer dereference in a free along an error path in the fuse library.
When I went to submit an upstream bug, it turned out that it had already been fixed
Could we please get this patch included in the current release.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All fuse release prior to 2.9.1.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount home directory with sshfs.
2. Start gnome desktop on mounted home directory
3. May have to repeat a couple of times.
The sshfs program dies and you get a "transport endpoint is not connected" error message when trying to access your home directory.
You expect to be able to access your home directory.
I've attached a patch against the f17 branch in the Fedora fedpkg repo for fuse to add a back ported version of the upstream patch.
fuse-2.8.7-2.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
