Subject[PATCH 4.14 145/193] svcrdma: Preserve CB send buffer across retransmits
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Chuck Lever <>

commit 0bad47cada5defba13e98827d22d06f13258dfb3 upstream.

During each NFSv4 callback Call, an RDMA Send completion frees the
page that contains the RPC Call message. If the upper layer
determines that a retransmit is necessary, this is too soon.

One possible symptom: after a GARBAGE_ARGS response an NFSv4.1
callback request, the following BUG fires on the NFS server:

This issue exists all the way back to v4.5, but refactoring and code
re-organization prevents this simple patch from applying to kernels
older than v4.12. The fix is the same, however, if someone needs to
backport it.
