@drslmr: Thank you for testing! I'm glad that it only hit a git workspace that is easy to recover. code -512 is -ERESTARTSYS, so I think you hit exactly the problem that was anticipated on the mailing list:

I think it would be great if you could report this to the mailing list. If you don't want to do that, I'd like to forward your post from here to the mailing list, if you have no objections.

I tried the patch and I get problems. When I do checkout a different branch of my software from a git repository things fail and I'm left with a corrupted workspace. The log files shows the following message:
kernel: afs: Lost contact with file server ... in cell ... (code -512) (all multi-homed ip addresses down for the server)
kernel: afs: failed to store file (network problems)
kernel: afs: file server ... in cell ... is back up (code 0) (multi-homed address; other same-host interfaces may still be down)

Thanks @Bevan, but it appears there are no patches, yet (or I couldn't find them). I've opened a bug report on the OpenAFS bug tracker.

Bevan commented on 2016-01-18 16:13

@totsilence: I will have a look and add them if they are already available. This may take until tomorrow, though.

Linux 4.4 is in testing and openafs does not compile.

Was anybody able to find the necessary patches?

Bevan commented on 2015-10-27 17:15

openafs's /usr/bin/sys file currently causes issues with python programs using packages from gi.repository (Gtk, Gdk, GObject, ...). Also other python programs could be affected.

Corresponding bugs are already reported:

A workaround is to add " -I" to the shebang (first line) of affected scripts.

I will have a look into this. Hopefully today or tomorrow.

Also this one, I think.,11933

Hi guys, it appears Linux 4.2 (now in testing) requires patches again. Could you check Bevan?

I think these are the patches (not sure though),11948,11949,11950,11951
