> Bruce, it might make sense for me to submit the three server-side RPC GSS patches, and then you can rebase the gssproxy work on top of those. Let me know how you would like to proceed.

I'm happy to take those patches whenever you consider them ready. Would
that fix the problem?

Also: it looks like 030d794bf498 "SUNRPC: Introduce
rpcauth_get_pseudoflavor()" is in Trond's linux-next, but not his
nfs-for-next. I'm not sure what that means--is it safe to rebase on top
of *that*?

I was hoping I could consider the gss-proxy work committed at this point
and pile any fixes on top, but... whatever works for you guys, I guess.
