The 5th parameter of filldir_t function type used by vfs_readdir
was changed from ino_t to u64 in October. Unfortunately the patch 
missed some files in fs/nfsd where functions pointers of type 
encode_dent_fn are passed around and finally cast to filldir_t.

The effect is only visible when an NFS server is run on a 32 bit
big-endian machine (it would have been visible on all 32 bit
architectures if the 6th parameter had been used). The results
are interesting: all files have an inode of 0 (unique you say?) 
from getdents(2) and even ls(1) does not find any files.

P.S.: this shows that function pointer casts are evil, but I did not 
find a simpler way to fix this.

Thanks a lot for this.

I agree that the function pointer cast is bad, and I think it is best
to get rid of it entirely.  This means changing the first arg of
*_encode_entry to be a 'void *', but I think the benefits are worth
the cost.

So I've modified your patch to do this and also fixed the nfsv4 code.

I'll get it into 2.6.20 and 2.6.19.x

Thanks,
NeilBrown

----------------------

Fix type mismatch with filldir_t used by nfsd.

nfsd defines a type 'encode_dent_fn' which is much like 'filldir_t'
except that the first pointer is 'struct readdir_cd *' rather than
'void *'.  It then casts encode_dent_fn points to 'filldir_t' as
needed.  This hides any other type mismatches between the two such as
the fact that the 'ino' arg recently changed from ino_t to u64.

So: get rid of 'encode_dent_fn', get rid of the cast of the function
type, change the first arg of various functions from 'struct readdir_cd *'
to 'void *', and live with the fact that we have a little less type
checking on the calling of these functions now.  
Less internal (to nfsd) checking offset by more external checking, which
is more important.

Thanks to Gabriel Paubert <paubert@iram.es> for discovering this and
providing an initial patch.
