Subject[PATCH 5.8 021/118] NFS: Zero-stateid SETATTR should first return delegation
From: Chuck Lever <>

[ Upstream commit 644c9f40cf71969f29add32f32349e71d4995c0b ]

If a write delegation isn't available, the Linux NFS client uses
a zero-stateid when performing a SETATTR.

NFSv4.0 provides no mechanism for an NFS server to match such a
request to a particular client. It recalls all delegations for that
file, even delegations held by the client issuing the request. If
that client happens to hold a read delegation, the server will
recall it immediately, resulting in an NFS4ERR_DELAY/CB_RECALL/

Optimize out this pipeline bubble by having the client return any
delegations it may hold on a file before it issues a
SETATTR(zero-stateid) on that file.
