Recursive delete in shared folder on Solaris fails with device busy => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: foobar42 Owned by:
Priority: major Component: shared folders
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.6 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Solaris
Host type: Linux

Description

Trying to run 'rm -rf <some-dir>' inside a shared folder results in numerous

rm: Unable to remove directory <some/sub/directory>: Device busy

and most directories are not removed (though all files are).

The issue appears to be related to the new mmap support, as building the vboxfs with VBOXVFS_WITH_MMAP undef'd in vboxfs_vnode.c "fixes" the issue.

Note that is basically identical to #6513, with the same setup (i.e. host is Linux with ext4, guest is Solaris 10u8) and same behaviour of both rm and rmdir as in that report.
