Race condition in the do_setlk function in fs/nfs/file.c in the Linux
kernel before 2.6.26 allows local users to cause a denial of service
(crash) via vectors resulting in an interrupted RPC call that leads to a
stray FL_POSIX lock, related to improper handling of a race between fcntl
and close in the EINTR case.
NFS did not correctly handle races between fcntl and interrupts. A local
attacker on an NFS mount could consume unlimited kernel memory, leading to
a denial of service.
