You mean fs/nfsd/nfsfh.c of course,

Yes I think this will trip us up - our read_inode implementation needs work,
specifically xfs_get_vnode () needs to do an xfs_iget rather than assuming
the inode is already present in XFS'es internal hash table. Paying special
attention to the reference count code of course....
