Subject[PATCH v2 0/3] Fix more NFS readdir regressions
Date
> OK. The first patch in this series fixes the regression reported by
> Nick Bowler when I apply it to my setup.

> The 2 remaining patches are needed in order to ensure that the
> VM doesn't free the readdir page cache page while we're trying to
> read from it, and to ensure that we don't leak memory...

> Linus, please don't apply these patches quite yet. I'd like to continue

v2 fixes the following issues:
- Fix up the cookie usage in uncached_readdir()
- Changelog fixups for the second patch
- .releasepage should use kmap_atomic() so that it can be called
from all direct reclaim contexts.
- Ensure that .releasepage also clears Pg_uptodate
- Set/clear the Pg_private flag to ensure .releasepage gets called when
appropriate.
- Add a .invalidatepage to ensure truncate_inode_pages() works correctly
- Ensure that the anonymous page that is generated by uncached_readdir()
doesn't leak memory.

Trond Myklebust (3):
NFS: Ensure we use the correct cookie in nfs_readdir_xdr_filler
NFS: lock the readdir page while it is in use
NFS: Fix a memory leak in nfs_readdir
