Subject: [PATCH 0/3] Support multiple ips per hostname
Date: Tue, 11 May 2021 13:36:06 -0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210511163609.11019-1-pc@cjr.nz> (raw)

Steve,

Follow a series to handle multiple ip addresses per hostame when
mounting, chasing DFS referrals and reconnecting.

We've defined a maximum number of 16 addresses a hostname can handle
as we did in mount.cifs (resolve_host.c::resolve_host).  If that's not
OK, then we could make it flexible by creating a new mount option like
'maxaddrs=N' or just increase it in both sides.

The mount.cifs(8) patch that passes multiple 'ip=' options to handle
all resolved addresses will be posted soon.

Paulo Alcantara (3):
  cifs: introduce smb3_options_for_each() helper
  cifs: handle multiple ip addresses per hostname
  cifs: fix find_root_ses() when refresing dfs cache
