Subject[PATCH 5.15 077/262] nfsd: fix crash on COPY_NOTIFY with special stateid
From: J. Bruce Fields <>

[ Upstream commit 074b07d94e0bb6ddce5690a9b7e2373088e8b33a ]

RTM says "If the special ONE stateid is passed to
nfs4_preprocess_stateid_op(), it returns status=0 but does not set
*cstid. nfsd4_copy_notify() depends on stid being set if status=0, and
thus can crash if the client sends the right COPY_NOTIFY RPC."

RFC 7862 says "The cna_src_stateid MUST refer to either open or locking
states provided earlier by the server. If it is invalid, then the
operation MUST fail."

The RFC doesn't specify an error, and the choice doesn't matter much as
this is clearly illegal client behavior, but bad_stateid seems

Simplest is just to guarantee that nfs4_preprocess_stateid_op, called
with non-NULL cstid, errors out if it can't return a stateid.
