    Subject[34-longterm 053/196] nfsd: fix auth_domain reference leak on nlm operations
    From: "J. Bruce Fields" <>

    This is a commit scheduled for the next v2.6.34 longterm release.
    If you see a problem with using this for longterm, please comment.

    commit 954032d2527f2fce7355ba70709b5e143d6b686f upstream.

    This was noticed by users who performed more than 2^32 lock operations
    and hence made this counter overflow (eventually leading to
    use-after-free's). Setting rq_client to NULL here means that it won't
    later get auth_domain_put() when it should be.

    Appears to have been introduced in 2.5.42 by "[PATCH] kNFSd: Move auth
    domain lookup into svcauth" which moved most of the rq_client handling
    to common svcauth code, but left behind this one line.
