NLM: Fix "kernel BUG at fs/lockd/host.c:417!" or ".../host.c:283!"
Nick Bowler <nbowler@elliptictech.com> reports: > We were just having some NFS server troubles, and my client machine > running 2.6.38-rc1+ (specifically, commit 2b1caf6ed7b888c95) crashed > hard (syslog output appended to this mail). > > I'm not sure what the exact timeline was or how to reproduce this, > but the server was rebooted during all this. Since I've never seen > this happen before, it is possibly a regression from previous kernel > releases. However, I recently updated my nfs-utils (on the client) to > version 1.2.3, so that might be related as well. [ BUG output redacted ] When done searching, the for_each_host loop in next_host_state() falls through and returns the final host on the host chain without bumping it's reference count. Since the host's ref count is only one at that point, releasing the host in nlm_host_rebooted() attempts to destroy the host prematurely, and therefore hits a BUG(). Likely, the original intent of the for_each_host behavior in next_host_state() was to handle the case when the host chain is empty. Searching the chain and finding no suitable host to return needs to be handled as well. Defensively restructure next_host_state() always to return NULL when the loop falls through. Introduced by commit b10e30f6 "lockd: reorganize nlm_host_rebooted". Cc: J.
