I'm also seeing stale filehandle problems here in recent kernels.

Setup: x86 or x86-64, TCP, NFSv4 compiled in to both server and client, but not specified in mount options.

This is readily reproducible with rsync -- I just boot to an earlier version of the kernel on the NFS client, and the stale filehandle problems go away.

Hi Jeff,

Does running an 'ls' on the server in the exported directory that is
stale on the client resolve the problem (temporarily)?
