    Linux image 3.6.0+ breaks NFS and/or symlinks


    I have been running linux-image 3.5.2 on debian sid since the release of 3.5.2. I have not had any issues with nfs. Today I installed 3.6.0 and my nfs does not work. The server location is mounted in the client /etc/fstab but file manager does not see the symlinks. What has changed in the way the kernel handles nfs in 3.6?

    Edit: This may be the same issue with symlinks as mentioned here

    Edit 2:
    nfs symlinks in /etc/fstab:
    Code:
    192.168.1.100:/home/jheaton5    /home/jheaton5/chico      nfs    rw,hard,intr,sync    0    0
    192.168.1.100:/home/jheaton5/chico /home/jheaton5/chico/chico	nfs	rw,hard,intr,sync	0	0

    Did you compile the 3.5.2 kernel by hand? How did you compile the 3.6.0 kernel? Did you use make oldconfig?

    The 3.5.2 kernel works just fine. I compile the latest kernels from kernel.org by the following method:
    Code:
    $ git clone -o stable git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git linux
    
    $ cd linux
    
    $ git checkout stable/linux-3.6.y
    
    $ cp /boot/config-$(uname -r) .config
    
    $ make localmodconfig
    
    $ make deb-pkg
    
    # dpkg -i ../<name of package>
    The problem with nfs began with 3.6.0 and persists with 3.6.1 and 3.6.2 which I compiled this morning.

    It is a known issue as the link I provided in the original post. I can't find any additional information on what's being done about it, if anything.
