DescriptionIn the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: nfsd: Fix nsfd startup race (again) Commit bd5ae9288d64 ("nfsd: register pernet ops last, unregister first") has re-opened rpc_pipefs_event() race against nfsd_net_id registration (register_pernet_subsys()) which has been fixed by commit bb7ffbf29e76 ("nfsd: fix nsfd startup race triggering BUG_ON"). Restore the order of register_pernet_subsys() vs register_cld_notifier(). Add WARN_ON() to prevent a future regression.
