subject says about all I can tell. If you take around 20 clients and let them
do heavy nfs action on a 2.4.22-pre5 server some seem to draw bad cards and
stall forever with:

Jul 13 02:02:35 test-2 kernel: nfs: server nfsserver.in.my.domain not
responding, still trying

These messages show up with other kernels on server, too. But I cannot remember
one where they do never recover. Even under 2.4.22-pre5 server they often
recover, but not always.
