Bug#666121: linux-image-3.2.0-1-686-pae: please rate-limit NFS state manager error messages
 
Package: linux-2.6
Version: 3.2.7-1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch


Sometimes, the NFSv4 client's state mangaer gets into a bad state.
This causes insane amounts of error messages which can quickly fill up
/var in common syslog configurations (i've seen 1000's of lines per
second)

I brought this up with upstream and Trond Myklebust offered the
attached patch to rate-limit the error messages:

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.nfs/47832

It was included in Trond's pull request last Thursday to Linus for
inclusion with upstream:

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.nfs/48150

Please consider this patch for inclusion in the debian kernel.

Thanks,

--dkg
