If an NFSv4.1 server doesn't support NFS4_OPEN_CLAIM_DELEG_CUR_FH
(e.g. Linux 3.0), and a newer NFS client tries to use it to claim
an open before returning a delegation, the server might return
NFS4ERR_BADXDR.
That is what Linux 3.0 does, though the RFC doesn't seem to be explicit
on which flags must be supported, and what error can be returned for
unsupported flags.

When NFS_CAP_ATOMIC_OPEN_V1 support was added in Commit 49f9a0fafd84
("NFSv4.1: Enable open-by-filehandle"), fall-back for non-supporting
servers was added for various open types, but not for delegation recall.

The code pattern for delegation recall is a little different to the
other open types, so I cannot simply copy the same approach.

I think the below patch should do the right thing, but I haven't tested
yet.

Does this look reasonable?  Is there a cleaner way to do it?  Should
we check other errors?

Thanks,
NeilBrown

NFS4ERR_BADXDR is defined in RFC5661, section 15.1.1.1 as meaning

"The arguments for this operation do not match those specified in the
XDR definition."

That's clearly not the case here, so I'd chalk this down to a fairly
blatant server bug, at which point it makes no sense to fix it in the
client.

Ok, but the RFC seems to suggest it is OK to not support this flag, so
suppose I fixed the server to return NFS4ERR_NOTSUPP instead.
The client still wouldn't handle this response gracefully.

NFS4ERR_NOTSUPP is wrong too as the OPEN operation is clearly
supported. The only error that might make sense is NFS4ERR_INVAL:

"15.1.1.4.  NFS4ERR_INVAL (Error Code 22)

   The arguments for this operation are not valid for some reason, even
   though they do match those specified in the XDR definition for the
   request."

That said, why do we care about supporting NFSv4.1 on this server? It
is clearly broken.

I care about it because a customer has a support contract, but that
isn't your problem.

I would think "we" care about it because we want to support the spec,
and the spec (RFC 5661 section 2.4) says:

                                                        where the server
   supports neither the CLAIM_DELEGATE_PREV nor CLAIM_DELEG_CUR_FH claim
   types

Also you have code in the client to handle the possibility that an
NFSv4.1 or later server might not handle some features of OPEN.
Three separate features are grouped under "NFS_CAP_ATOMIC_OPEN_V1":
If this isn't set, we fall back:

        case NFS4_OPEN_CLAIM_FH:
                return NFS4_OPEN_CLAIM_NULL;
        case NFS4_OPEN_CLAIM_DELEG_CUR_FH:
                return NFS4_OPEN_CLAIM_DELEGATE_CUR;
        case NFS4_OPEN_CLAIM_DELEG_PREV_FH:
                return NFS4_OPEN_CLAIM_DELEGATE_PREV;

However nfs4_map_atomic_open_claim() is not called when
NFS4_OPEN_CLAIM_DELEG_CUR_FH is tried, and fails.  This appears
to be an omission in the code.

Thanks,
NeilBrown

Given the context, I think that is actually a typo. It looks to me like
it is talking about CLAIM_DELEGATE_PREV and CLAIM_DELEG_PREV_FH, since
otherwise the talk about releasing delegation state when establishing a
new lease makes no sense.

Right. That's a convenience for downgrading NFSv4.1 service to what is
supported by NFSv4.0.

It is deliberate. There really isn't anything that describes what is
and isn't mandatory to implement in NFSv4.1, but if we have to make
everything optional, then we're going to have to add a lot of mostly
unnecessary complexity to the client.
At what point do we then stop? Do we support a NFSv4.1 server that
implements no NFSv4.1 features? Why not just let the client downgrade
to NFSv4.0 in that case?

Hmmm.. Yes, that's believable.

I was a bit surprised that nfs4_map_atomic_open_claim() exists at all,
but given that it did, I assumed it would be used more uniformly.

So this all implies that Linux NFS server claimed to support NFSv4.1
before it actually did - which seems odd.  This is just a bug (which are
expected), but a clear ommission.

Oh well, it probably won't be too hard to backport the
NFS4_OPEN_CLAIM_DELEG_CUR_FH support if it turns out to be really
needed.

Thanks a lot for your time,
NeilBrown

For what it's worth, I did make some attempt to keep 4.1 by default
until 3.11 (see d109148111cd "nfsd4: support minorversion 1 by default")
but probably could have communicated that better.  This isn't the only
blatant known issue in older code.

(I meant to say: "keep 4.1 off by default".)

Ahh... thanks for that.
Looking more deeply, I see that we (SUSE) left it that way, but there is
a sysconfig option to explicitly enable NFSv4.1 service, and the
customer has explicitly enabled that.
So it is sort-of there fault.
Maybe we shouldn't have given them the option.

Anyway, it is all clear now.  Thanks.
