The nfs4_proc_lock function in fs/nfs/nfs4proc.c in the NFSv4 client
in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31-rc4 allows remote NFS servers to
cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and panic) by
sending a certain response containing incorrect file attributes, which
trigger attempted use of an open file that lacks NFSv4 state.
