[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 0/2] nfsd/dlm: fix knfsd panic when NFSv4 client does GETLK call



This patchset fixes a regression due to this patch:

----------------[snip]----------------
commit 55ef1274dddd4de387c54d110e354ffbb6cdc706
Author: J. Bruce Fields <bfields citi umich edu>

    nfsd: Ensure nfsv4 calls the underlying filesystem on LOCKT
----------------[snip]----------------

To reproduce, set up a nfs server that is serving out a GFS2 filesystem.
Set a lock locally on a file on the GFS2 export on the server. From a
NFSv4 client, do a GETLK against the same file. The server will oops due
to a NULL pointer dereference. The fl_lmops will be set, but the
fl_owner will be a NULL pointer. The knfsd code does not account for
this possibility. It assumes that when fl_lmops is set this way that
the fl_owner will point to a valid nfs4_stateowner struct.

In actuality, Bruce's patch is correct, but it exposes a bug in DLM's
GETLK codepath. The first patch in this set fixes that.

The second patch fixes knfsd to be a little more careful about the
file_lock struct it builds to pass to vfs_test_lock.

Either patch should prevent the panic, though I think applying both
patches is the best approach to fixing this.

Jeff Layton (2):
  dlm: initialize file_lock struct in GETLK before copying conflicting
    lock
  nfsd: only set file_lock.fl_lmops in nfsd4_lockt if a stateowner is
    found
