    Subjectnasty inode leak in 2.1.125? details

    Hi,

    I just found out a way to make filesystems unmountable in 2.1.125, perhaps
    an inode or dentry leak.

    Here's how (as some random user)

    mkdir foo
    cd foo
    cat > bar
    blahblah

    Now get up another shell and rm -rf foo
    Go back to the "cat > bar" command and type a few more characters.
    Exit the cat command.

    Now log off as this normal user. Log on as root, kill off everything and
    try and unmount the filesystem foo was on. In my case it was /home.

    Sounds serious to me :)

    Chris
