Subjectpatch for 2.1.60 nfs rename
Hi Ingo,

I've put together a patch to check out Linus's theory that side effects
of nfs rename operations are causing the file corruption problem. It
appears possible that following a silly-rename/link operation two
separate dentry paths will both use the same nfs inode. Once the
underlying file is removed on the server, the server might be reuse the
fileid for a different file, and the remaining dentry path on the client
could then corrupt the new file.

The patch takes care of this by dropping the linked dentry to force a
new lookup, which will then have the correct (from the server's
standpoint) fileid.

I've tested the patch for basic functionality and it seems OK, but I'd
like for you and the other heavy NFS users to give it a thorough
workout. (Especially those people who have had repeatable problems with
NFS (untarring big files, etc.))

Regards,
