Subject[PATCH 01/15] nfsd: tone down inaccurate dprintk
From: J. Bruce Fields <>

The nfserr_dropit happens routinely on upcalls (so a kmalloc failure is
almost never the actual cause), but I occasionally get a complant from
some tester that's worried because they ran across this message after
turning on debugging to research some unrelated problem.
