Thanks... Then the patch I sent Birger is very likely the correct one.
Originally I had a test for whether sock_wspace(sk) was greater than
some minimal value. We need this for UDP in order to avoid waking up
'rpciod' before the socket buffer is large enough to accommodate the
RPC datagram. As the same code worked in 2.2.x for TCP, I had assumed
it was OK...
