I did a short check through the pre10 patch but couldn't find my small
patch to linux/net/sunrpc/sched.c I sent you back in August.

This patch fixes (at least for us) the problem where rpciod still
keeps references into the root fs even after it was daemonized.

I didn't get any reaction after posting this patch, neither
positive nor negative.

In case you don't remember here's the patch again:

rpciod_pid = current->pid;
up(&rpciod_running);

exit_files(current);
exit_mm(current);
+ exit_fs(current);

spin_lock_irq(&current->sigmask_lock);
siginitsetinv(&current->blocked, sigmask(SIGKILL));
recalc_sigpending(current);
spin_unlock_irq(&current->sigmask_lock);

Is there any reason for not including this in 2.2.20?
It helps us getting rid of the initial ramdisk rootfs
on our diskless clients...

Regards,

- andreas
