Hi.

This is tested with rc3, but as nothing has changed wrt NFS ;)
Client and server are _plain_ rc3, no strange patches applied (no -jam, no
bproc...)

Plz tell me what am I doing wrong, or if it is a bug. I boot with an initrd that
mounts /lib via NFS.
Then just try this:

fd = open("/lib/libnss_files-2.3.2.so", O_RDONLY);
res = read(fd,buf,512);

It fails. strace is like this:

execve("./tst", ["./tst"], [/* 10 vars */]) = 0
uname({sys="Linux", node="node00.net0.cluster", ...}) = 0
brk(0) = 0x8049658
old_mmap(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x40014000
open("/etc/ld.so.preload", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/etc/ld.so.cache", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/lib/i686/sse/mmx/libc.so.6", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat64("/lib/i686/sse/mmx", 0xbffff580) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/lib/i686/sse/libc.so.6", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat64("/lib/i686/sse", 0xbffff580) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/lib/i686/mmx/libc.so.6", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat64("/lib/i686/mmx", 0xbffff580) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/lib/i686/libc.so.6", O_RDONLY) = 3
read(3, "\177ELF\1\1\1\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\3\0\3\0\1\0\0\0\20]\1\000"..., 512) = 512
fstat64(3, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0755, st_size=1237568, ...}) = 0
old_mmap(NULL, 1242756, PROT_READ|PROT_EXEC, MAP_PRIVATE, 3, 0) = 0x40015000
old_mmap(0x4013f000, 12288, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_FIXED, 3, 0x12a000) = 0x4013f000
old_mmap(0x40142000, 9860, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_FIXED|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x40142000
close(3) = 0
open("/lib/libnss_files-2.3.2.so", O_RDONLY) = -1 ESTALE (Stale NFS file handle)
read(-1, 0xbffffc40, 512) = -1 EBADF (Bad file descriptor)

No program can read that. So anything that tries to mmap it breaks, like
anything that tries to get protocol info:
proto = getprotobyname("tcp");

open("/etc/nsswitch.conf", O_RDONLY) = 3
fstat64(3, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=1744, ...}) = 0
mmap2(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x40145000
read(3, "#\n# /etc/nsswitch.conf\n#\n# An ex"..., 4096) = 1744
read(3, "", 4096) = 0
close(3) = 0
munmap(0x40145000, 4096) = 0
open("/lib/i686/libnss_files.so.2", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/lib/sse/mmx/libnss_files.so.2", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat64("/lib/sse/mmx", 0xbffff4e0) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/lib/sse/libnss_files.so.2", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat64("/lib/sse", 0xbffff4e0) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/lib/mmx/libnss_files.so.2", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat64("/lib/mmx", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0755, st_size=4096, ...}) = 0
open("/lib/libnss_files.so.2", O_RDONLY) = -1 ESTALE (Stale NFS file handle)

I can guess where the problem comes from (something that was suggested in
previous answers). I use an initrd built copying anything
I need before the NFS mounts, like ifup and so on. I have not messed with
syslinux or dietlibc, so some of the utils need libnss_files, and it is present
in the initrd. So I think the problem comes when I try to use a NFS file that
was also in the initrd, and is probably already mapped, because I used programs
that used it before the NFS mounts.

Should all this work ? Is my fault ? Is a bug ?

TIA
