SubjectCrash again: VFS: No free inodes - contact Linus

System:
ALR Revolution 6x6
BT-950
DPT PM-3334UW (with 11 4.5G drives in RAID5 array, 40% used, 11% inode usage)
SMC EtherPower 10/100 (tulip.c 0.77)
kernel: 2.0.30 + filehandlepatch + ip_fragment.c fix

For the 3rd time in as many weeks, this machine has gone into a loop of:

VFS: No free inodes - contact Linus

This time, without the interspersing of SYN messages (I had RST
cookies turned off, thinking that was the cause before!)

So once again, I'm at a loss as to why this keeps happening, out of the
blue.

This is a production server, so I don't want to venture into 2.1.* yet,
and because of the tedious balance between tulip.c, SMP and kernel, its
getting really hairy.
