[suse-security] Bug in nfsd from kernel


I discovered a bug in the nfs daemon delivered with the kernel update to

When accessing a large amount of files over an nfs export from a machine
with SuSE 10.1 and kernel, stale NFS handles occur. After
a short period (3-5s) the files are accessible again. "grep -R hello" *
triggers the bug for example.

My configuration:
SuSE 10.1 with kernel, NFS export of an XFS filesystem
mounted on different clients with autofs (UDP and TCP).

Degrading back the kernel to and all works fine again.
