    Subject[PATCH] nfs: Fix NFS v4 client handling of MAY_EXEC in nfs_permission.
    Sorry for the resend, got lkml address wrong...

    The problem is that permission checking is skipped if atomic open is
    possible, but when exec opens a file, it just opens it O_READONLY which
    means EXEC permission will not be checked at that time.

    This problem is observed by the following sequence (executed as root):

    mount -t nfs4 server:/ /mnt4
    echo "ls" >/mnt4/foo
    chmod 744 /mnt4/foo
    su guest -c "mnt4/foo"
