I was getting:
Dec 31 09:12:46 nfs1 kernel: nfsd: non-standard errno: -117
and in trying to figure out what it meant, I bumped up the XFS debug
level to 6, which enabled me to see the errors from XFS. Maybe I should
have just left it alone?
I should have pointed out that when this happened, the filesystem did
not actually shut down. So it did not cause any real problems. Should it
have been shutting down?
I was mainly just worried that depending on what data it happened to hit
when accessing the nonexistent inode, it might screw things up. If I do
encounter any shutdowns, I will apply the patch you sent through. Thanks
for the ultra-fast response.
I realise preserving inode/generation numbers on dump/restore is
probably hard and never going to happen. None of the other Linux
filesystems I have looked at do it either. It would be very, very nice
though... This is a feature I have wanted for ages.
