SubjectRe: [RFC][PATCH] sunrpc: fix oops in rpc_create() when the mount namespace is unshared
Quoting Cedric Le Goater (clg@fr.ibm.com):
> On a system with nfs mounts, if a task unshares its mount namespace,
> a oops can occur when the system is rebooted if the task is the last
> to unreference the nfs mount. It will try to create a rpc request
> using utsname() which has been invalidated by free_nsproxy().
>
> The patch fixes the issue by using the global init_utsname() but at
> the same time, it breaks the capability of identifying rpc clients
> per uts namespace.

> Any better suggestions ?

Thanks, Cedric. Eric is probably right about the long-term fix, but
yeah it might take a while to properly wade through the sunrpc and nfs
layers to store the nodename at nfs mount time, and in the meantime this
fixes a real oops.
