    Ok, stuck them in, and my debug patch from yesterday, just in case...

    However, I can't seem to run long enough to establish whether the
    problem is gone. It deadlocks between 10-30 minutes due to missing IO
    completions, whereas yesterday it took between 45-60 minutes to trigger
    the 'desynchronized value of nfs_i.ncommit' messages.

    I will continue trying go get a good run, however if you got some
    (perhaps experimental .22) patches you want me to try..
