Ok don't worry about upgrading kernels for now, (Disclaimer: I'm no NFS
expert). it looks like there might have been a race here.

Code: Bad EIP value

It looks like a possible race with rpc_execute and possibly the timer,
although i can't be certain where the other cpus are. Do the other oopses
look somewhat similar? Could you supply them?
