does someone know how to find a file from a NFS server, given a filehandle
from tcpdump ?
23:05:38.425334 > 112 getattr fh 16,36/1931 (DF)

Maybe the easiest way would be to use fhopen() or fhstat(), but then I need
to know how to build a fhandle_t from the above information :)

Also, in this trace:
23:01:42.771740 > reply ok 1448 readdirplus
23:01:42.771757 > reply ERR 456
is 456 an error code ? If so, where can I find what it means ?

And, last question, has anyone heard from NFS problems with a linux 2.6.6
kernel as client ?
