Very interesting... The damn thing *is* a directory, which should have
made NFS skip all lookup_instantiate_filp() tricks completely. IOW, it's
not hitting anything intent-related at that case.

I really wonder where the hell does EISDIR come from; no matter how screwed
the cached attributes are, there's not a lot of places where we can return
that sucker. It either comes from something in NFS itself, or it's
may_open() getting MAY_WRITE on that object or it has to see O_CREAT in
open_flag. And acc_mode is not modified after it's set in do_filp_open().
If that calculation (acc_mode by open_flag) would be buggered for O_RDONLY,
we'd be seeing a lot more breakage, starting with ls(1) ;-)

One possibility is that shit hits the fan a bit earlier and git really passes
something odd to that open() as the result of bogus stat(), etc.

Folks, could you try the following: in do_last() move case LAST_DOT:
to immediately after follow_dotdot(nd); and see if that changes anything?
It shouldn't, but if nfs is playing odd tricks with ->d_revalidate() for
directories acting differently depending on LOOKUP_PARENT in flags...

IOW, replace
case LAST_DOTDOT:
follow_dotdot(nd);
dir = nd->path.dentry;
if (nd->path.mnt->mnt_sb->s_type->fs_flags & FS_REVAL_DOT) {
if (!dir->d_op->d_revalidate(dir, nd)) {
error = -ESTALE;
goto exit;
}
}
/* fallthrough */
case LAST_DOT:
case LAST_ROOT:
with
case LAST_DOTDOT:
follow_dotdot(nd);
/* fallthrough */
case LAST_DOT:
dir = nd->path.dentry;
if (nd->path.mnt->mnt_sb->s_type->fs_flags & FS_REVAL_DOT) {
if (!dir->d_op->d_revalidate(dir, nd)) {
error = -ESTALE;
goto exit;
}
}
/* fallthrough */
case LAST_ROOT:
and see what'll change.
