server name was resolved to.

I would put in the commit msg that this requires recent kernel.

We should probably merge kernel code first so we can reference it here
in the commit msg, and say in the man page when did the kernel change.

There can be cases where cifs-utils is more recent than kernel and
mount.cifs will pass all the ip instead of trying them before passing
the good one to the kernel but since it's an old kernel it won't try
them all. We could add an option to enable new behavior or check the
kernel version from within mount.cifs.. thoughts?

I think you should write this in a clearer way and comment, this is hard
to read. What does addrlist value looks like for example? Why are we
copying things backward?
Why is the last 'q' in the while condition instead of the end of the while block?

I was going to say should we return errors if we truncate the ips, but
none of the mount.cifs.c code checks for truncation so I guess we can
ignore.

Ok, so now we pass all IPs to mount() and we don't retry.
I would add a comment before the break to say that the kernel will try
all the IPs so if we get these errors none of them worked.

Cheers,

We could at least warn on older cifs.ko (which would be unlikely to
work unless someone backported features but didn't backport the
updated version #) by checking for the version number (2.32? 2.33?)

"cat /proc/fs/cifs/DebugData | grep Version" shows the version number
easily info (there are other ways to retrieve it as well)

Agreed.

Good point!  Yes, we should handle both cases.

I don't like the idea of checking the version because the running kernel
might not have the expected patches.

Perhaps a new option would be better... I'll think more about it.

That's horrible, indeed.  I'll definitely make it readable in next
version.

IIRC, yes.

Hi Paulo,

Are you planning to post another version of this patch? If there is
already one HI which I missed, please let me know.

Not for now, thanks.  I would have to repost the multip support in
cifs.ko and rebase it against current for-next.  Then figure out a way
properly handle the different kernel versions and/or compatibility
features in cifs-utils so we can decide whether or not let the kernel
retry all ip addresses at mount time.

I'll let you know.
