    Subject[ 061/167] [PATCH] nfsd: dont fail unchecked creates of non-special files
    3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


    From: "J. Bruce Fields" <>

    commit 9dc4e6c4d1182d34604ea40fef641775f5b15456 upstream.

    Allow a v3 unchecked open of a non-regular file succeed as if it were a
    lookup; typically a client in such a case will want to fall back on a
    local open, so succeeding and giving it the filehandle is more useful
    than failing with nfserr_exist, which makes it appear that nothing at
    all exists by that name.

    Similarly for v4, on an open-create, return the same errors we would on
    an attempt to open a non-regular file, instead of returning

    This fixes a problem found doing a v4 open of a symlink with
    O_RDONLY|O_CREAT, which resulted in the current client returning EEXIST.

    Thanks also to Trond for analysis.
