OK, drop me an email if you will see corruption also with this kernel.

Yes, EIO makes more sence. I think the problem is NFS connected anyway
though :). But I don't have a clue how it can happen yet. Maybe I can try
adding some low-cost debugging checks if you'd be willing to run such
kernel...
I'm adding to CC linux-nfs just in case someone has an idea.

Yes, that's to be expected given the corruption any NFS error messages?

Without any problem, we have 24/7/365 physical access and we don't need
to provide high-availability services.

Anyway, the data hosted aren't that important, there is little or even
no need for strict confidentiality, so we will be happy to provide ssh
access to whom would like to look deeper into this issue.

There are some error messages on NFS clients, however they are quite old.

Apr 19 15:38:21 gin kernel: NFS: Buggy server - nlink == 0!
May 3 20:00:52 gin kernel: NFS: Buggy server - nlink == 0!
May 3 23:24:03 gin kernel: NFS: Buggy server - nlink == 0!
May 7 11:40:57 gin kernel: NFS: Buggy server - nlink == 0!
May 7 14:41:02 gin kernel: NFS: Buggy server - nlink == 0!
May 26 11:10:42 cognac kernel: NFS: Buggy server - nlink == 0!

May 26 12:34:39 cognac kernel: NFS: Buggy server - nlink == 0!
May 26 12:39:43 cognac kernel: NFS: Buggy server - nlink == 0!

This is obviously related to the corruption.

It might be interesting to know whether the file that we returned to the
client with nlink 0 was the same that you later saw corruption on; maybe
adding a printk of the inode number there would help.

Googling around on that error message, a previous thread:

http://marc.info/?t=107429333300004&r=1&w=4

seems to conclude it's a bug, but doesn't followup with a fix. And I
don't see any mention of possible filesystem corruption.

Is NFSv4 involved here? I wonder if something that might otherwise be
only a problem for the client could become a problem for the server if
it attempts to do further operations with an unlinked inode in a
compound operation that follows a lookup.

Actually, leaving that file in the filesystem can potentially lead to
strange effects because eventually the inode "spip%3Farticle19.f8740dca"
points to gets reallocated and then you can get e.g. a hardlinked
directory. On the other hand having it lost+found should be safe enough.

Cool, I'll try to cook up something then.

I don't need to go that far (at least for now) but thanks for the offer.

Yes, again this confirms that the inode was just correctly deleted. But
somehow a pointer to it remained in the directory.

Yes, this is a consequence of the bug - somebody deleted an inode because
i_nlink dropped down to 0 but the inode was in fact still referenced.

NFSv3 here.

This happened a few times in the past, we saw corrupted dentries reappearing with
a new file. New files with reference count set to 1 (but obviously should be 2 in
this case). So the rule is "do not delete corrupted dentries anyway, keep them
safe in lost+found and do not touch it" ;).
