Bug#329800: kernel-image-2.6.8-2: NFSv3 Failure with 2.6.8-2, apparently fixed in 2.6.11

Package: kernel-image-2.6.8-2-686-smp
Version: 2.6.8-16
Severity: important
File: kernel-image-2.6.8-2


On the 2.6.8-2 kernel-tree, apparently there were a number of NFSv3
problems introduced which Linux later fixed in 2.6.11, or maybe earlier
in 2.6.9. This causes a NFSv3 mount from a Services for Unix 3.5 server
to successfully mount, but hang whenever a 'ls' is performed on that
directory or you attempt to 'cd' to it. I tested this with a 2.6.11
kernel pacgae from unstable and had no problems, nor did I have a
problem with a Fedora Core 4 machine which is also running 2.6.11. The
condition can be worked aroung by switching to 2.6.11, using NFSv2.
