Subjectnfs client problem in kernel 2.4.0
Hello,

I have a problem using the nfs client in kernel 2.4.0

My server is an SGI running IRIX 6.5.8

This tiny program, t1.c, displays the problem:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <dirent.h>
main()
{
DIR *dp;
struct dirent *de;

dp=opendir(".");

while((de=readdir(dp))!=NULL)
{
printf("%s\n", de->d_name);
}
closedir(dp);
}

It just simply lists the files in the current directory,
no big deal.

If I execute this on my redhat 7.0 machine running kernel 2.4.0,
in a directory exported from the SGI machine, one file is always
missing! This is not a permission problem, there's no problems
doing this from another machine running rh70 and kernel 2.2.16.

The output is:

$ ls -l
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mk carlsber 26 Jan 16 14:03 Makefile
-rwxrwxr-x 1 mk carlsber 13764 Jan 16 14:10 t1
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mk carlsber 194 Jan 16 14:10 t1.c
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mk carlsber 4509736 Jan 16 13:46 t1.dat

$ ./t1
.
..
t1
t1.c
t1.dat

The Makefile is not listed.

$ strace t1

close(3) = 0
munmap(0x40018000, 4096) = 0

Under kernel 2.2.16 I get the following from strace:

open(".", O_RDONLY|O_NONBLOCK|O_DIRECTORY) = 3
fstat64(3, 0xbffff630) = -1 ENOSYS (Function not
implemented)
fstat(3, {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0775, st_size=65, ...}) = 0
fcntl64(3, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC) = -1 ENOSYS (Function not
implemented)
fcntl(3, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC) = 0
brk(0) = 0x80496d8
brk(0x804a720) = 0x804a720
brk(0x804b000) = 0x804b000
getdents64(3, 0x8049710, 4096) = -1 ENOSYS (Function not
implemented)
getdents(3, /* 6 entries */, 3933) = 100
fstat(1, {st_mode=S_IFCHR|0620, st_rdev=makedev(136, 2), ...}) = 0
old_mmap(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS,
-1, 0) = 0x40017000
ioctl(1, TCGETS, {B38400 opost isig icanon echo ...}) = 0
write(1, ".\n", 2.
) = 2
write(1, "..\n", 3..
) = 3
write(1, "t1\n", 3t1
) = 3
write(1, "t1.c\n", 5t1.c
) = 5
write(1, "t1.dat\n", 7t1.dat
) = 7
write(1, "Makefile\n", 9Makefile
) = 9
getdents(3, /* 0 entries */, 3933) = 0
close(3) = 0
munmap(0x40017000, 4096) = 0
_exit(0) = ?

Why do I see this difference?

BTW, I've tried both NFS2 and NFS3 (flag during compile
and nfsvers during mount), no difference.
If I use a Linux NFS server, the problem doesn't show up,
so it is the combination SGI NFS server and Linux 2.4.0
NFS client.

I first noticed this problem because one of the news servers I
use had disappeared from the list in netscape after upgrading to kernel
2.4.0,
and an strace lead me to suspect that readdir had a problem via
NFS to an SGI server.

Is this a kernel 2.4.0 problem or have I forgotten to upgrade
something else in rh70?
