Ok, but the problem seems to have appeared before 2.6.24-rc4.

Server is 2.6.23-rc9 and is exporting:


The NFS client (Core2 SMP) 2.6.24-rc3-git4:

NFS-server:/dirA/dirB /dirA/dirB nfs

Then on the client when the new kernel has booted:

ls /dirA/dirB --> normal listing
ls /dirA/dirB/dirC --> Stale NFS file handle
ls /dirA/dirB/dirD --> Stale NFS file handle

I will do a few more builds/boots and check -rc3-git2 and -rc3-git3.

Will report back shortly,
