Right, makes sense. I will include it in the next patch revision.
Thans.

Is adding the below to the previous description enough?

The 83ca7f5ab31f introduced implicit renew operation when calling nfs4_do_fsinfo(),
which is not done by NFS servers which under some circumstances results in nfsv4.0 lease
to expire on a server side which then will return NFS4ERR_EXPIRED or NFS4ERR_STALE_CLIENTID.
This can be easily reproduced by frequently unmounting a sub-mount over nfsv4.0,
which after a grace period will result in an error returned by a server when accessing a file.
This can also happen after a sub-mount is automatically unmounted due to inactivity
(after nfs_mountpoint_expiry_timeout), then the sub-mount is stat'ed causing it to be mounted again,
and a file is accessed shortly after (this all depends on specific grace time, last RENEW, etc.).
This specific case was observed on a production systems.

Thanks for the explanation, I'm learning here and really do appreciate any help.
So given the above advise I ended up with the below:

Let me know if that's what you had it mind and if no further comments I will finish testing and submit new patch.

Strictly speaking I don't think renew is required here, but adding it as part of the compound
operation is harmless and more in-line with how it is currently done for v4.1.

Also, before the 83ca7f5ab31f, implicit lease renewal was only done in nfs4_proc_setclientid_confirm(),
but the function is not called when mounting a sub-mount, and it was not done in nfs4_do_fsinfo() either.
The implicit renewal in nfs4_do_fsinfo() when mounting each submount was introduced by the commit, before it only happened on root
mount.
So this particular issue I'm trying to fix here did not occur before the change, I think.

(btw: according to RFC7530 section 9.5. the implicit renewal in setclientid_confirm() wasn't correct either but I think it was
harmless).
