Subject[PATCH 3.14 35/59] NFS: populate ->net in mount data when remounting
3.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Mateusz Guzik <>

commit a914722f333b3359d2f4f12919380a334176bb89 upstream.

Otherwise the kernel oopses when remounting with IPv6 server because
net is dereferenced in dev_get_by_name.

Use net ns of current thread so that dev_get_by_name does not operate on
foreign ns. Changing the address is prohibited anyway so this should not
affect anything.
