    Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.5 009/542] nfsd4: avoid NULL deference on strange COPY compounds
    From: "J. Bruce Fields" <>

    [ Upstream commit d781e3df710745fbbaee4eb07fd5b64331a1b175 ]

    With cross-server COPY we've introduced the possibility that the current
    or saved filehandle might not have fh_dentry/fh_export filled in, but we
    missed a place that assumed it was. I think this could be triggered by
    a compound like:

    PUTFH(foreign filehandle)

    First, check_if_stalefh_allowed sets no_verify on the first (PUTFH) op.
    Then op_func = nfsd4_putfh runs and leaves current_fh->fh_export NULL.
    need_wrongsec_check returns true, since this PUTFH has OP_IS_PUTFH_LIKE
    set and GETATTR does not have OP_HANDLES_WRONGSEC set.

    We should probably also consider tightening the checks in
    check_if_stalefh_allowed and double-checking that we don't assume the
    filehandle is verified elsewhere in the compound. But I think this
    fixes the immediate issue.
