SubjectNewsOS vs [pre6] NFS client workaround
Date
Hi,

there is a horrible bug in the Sony NewsOS 4.1R NFS server which
totaly confuses the Linux NFS client attribute cache.

When creating directories it returns the inode of the parent dir
rather the newly created one.

This bug is related to the syslog message:
nfs_refresh_inode: inode number mismatch

If you have a Sony: Simply type mkdir 1; mkdir 1/2 on a Sony exported
FS and you are lost ;-) It took me 6 Hours to find this ;-(

Cheers,
Olaf
