Patches for the Linux kernel:
NFS client-side attribute cache fix against 2.4.18-pre4 plus Trond's NFS_ALL
patch from 1/19/2002. This patch prevents the kernel from caching hlfsd's
symlink between different users; the NFS bug it fixed had a one-jiffy window
open where it could cache attributes and reuse them, even with "noac" set.
This patch solves two problems in the Linux kernel v2.2.19
when Amd direct mounts are used:
- The kernel fails to revalidate the symlink provided by Amd.
The remote filesystem is mounted, then timed-out, and then it is never
- The kernel doesn't allow unmounting the direct mountpoint itself,
making it impossible to restart Amd without rebooting.
This patch has identical functionality to the one above,
but is for the Linux kernel v2.4.4.
