    Subject[026/102] CIFS: Fix oops while mounting with prefixpath
    3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


    From: Pavel Shilovsky <>

    commit f5bc1e755d23d022bf948904386337fc3e5e29a8 upstream.

    commit fec11dd9a0109fe52fd631e5c510778d6cbff6cc caused
    a regression when we have already mounted //server/share/a
    and want to mount //server/share/a/b.

    The problem is that lookup_one_len calls __lookup_hash
    with nd pointer as NULL. Then __lookup_hash calls
    do_revalidate in the case when dentry exists and we end
    up with NULL pointer deference in cifs_d_revalidate:

    if (nd->flags & LOOKUP_RCU)
    return -ECHILD;

    Fix this by checking nd for NULL.
