Subject: [PATCH 3.10 51/85] NFSv4: nfs4_stateid_is_current should return true for an invalid stateid

3.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Trond Myklebust <>

commit e1253be0ece1a95a02c7f5843194877471af8179 upstream.

When nfs4_set_rw_stateid() can fails by returning EIO to indicate that
the stateid is completely invalid, then it makes no sense to have it
trigger a retry of the READ or WRITE operation. Instead, we should just
have it fall through and attempt a recovery.

This fixes an infinite loop in which the client keeps replaying the same
bad stateid back to the server.
