We have observed that the Mandrake 8.1 kernel exhibits a umask problem when xfs volumes are exported with nfs.
If a new directory is created via nfs on an xfs volume, the umask from the current process is not inherited.
Reading the mail archive, it looks like this problem or something extremely similar was fixed in the XFS tree a long time ago.
We do not observe this problem with 2.4.5-xfs-1.0.1 which has been our production kernel prior to the arrival of XFS support in Mandrake.
Can someone please take a look at the xfs code in the Mandrake build and confirm the problem.
