    SubjectIssue with Race Condition on NFS4 with KRB
    From
    Hello,

    We are trying to update our linux images in our CS lab and have it a
    bit of an issue. We are
    using nfs to load user home folder. While testing the new image we
    found that the nfs4 module will
    crash when using firefox 3.6.17 for an extended period of time. Some
    research via google yielded that
    it's a potential race condition specific to nfs with krb auth with
    newer kernels. Our old image doesn't have
    this issue and it seems that its due to it running a far older kernel version.

    We have two images and both are having this problem. One is running
    2.6.39 and the other is 2.6.38.
    Here is what dmesg spit out from the machine running 2.6.39 on one occasion:

    Is there some sort of work around?

    Thank you in advance
