[PATCH 003/106] nfsd4: fix decoding of compounds across page boundaries

From: Luis Henriques
Date: Tue Jul 30 2013 - 06:06:07 EST -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: "J. Bruce Fields" <bfields@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 247500820ebd02ad87525db5d9b199e5b66f6636 upstream.

A freebsd NFSv4.0 client was getting rare IO errors expanding a tarball.
A network trace showed the server returning BAD_XDR on the final getattr
of a getattr+write+getattr compound. The final getattr started on a
page boundary.

I believe the Linux client ignores errors on the post-write getattr, and
that that's why we haven't seen this before.
