Subject[PATCH 4.18 076/168] afs: Fix cell specification to permit an empty address list
Date
4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit ecfe951f0c1b169ea4b7dd6f3a404dfedd795bc2 ]

Fix the cell specification mechanism to allow cells to be pre-created
without having to specify at least one address (the addresses will be
upcalled for).

This allows the cell information preload service to avoid the need to issue
loads of DNS lookups during boot to get the addresses for each cell (500+
lookups for the 'standard' cell list[*]). The lookups can be done later as
each cell is accessed through the filesystem.

Also remove the print statement that prints a line every time a new cell is
added.

[*] There are 144 cells in the list. Each cell is first looked up for an
SRV record, and if that fails, for an AFSDB record. These get a list
of server names, each of which then has to be looked up to get the
addresses for that server. E.g.:

dig srv _afs3-vlserver._udp.grand.central.org
