Hi,

Well, I tried backing out the vm changes from pre4, no
luck so started disabling things. So far, it seems my
firewall script is at fault. I looked through the
pre3-pre4 diff and the only change to the nat code is a
one-liner.

# [NETFILTER]: NAT range calculation fix.
#
# This patch fixes a logic bug in NAT range calculations, which also
# causes a large slowdown when ICMP floods go through NAT.

}
Reversing that change has thus far fixed things over here
but time will tell. Is there any possible way that that
particular change is somehow not smp safe?
