SubjectNFS BUG_ON in nfs_do_writepage
Hi world,
I've got a production server that's running as an NFSv4 client, along with
a number of other machines.

All the other machines are perfectly happy, but this one is a bit of a
bother. It's got a Core 2 Duo 6700, with a D975XBX2 motherboard and 4 GB

The problem is that, under heavy load, NFS will trip a BUG_ON in
nfs_do_writepage, as follows:

---[ end trace 6d60c9b253ebcf15 ]---

64bit kernel, 32bit userland. vanilla, bug occurred as early as
2.6.28, bug still occurs with 2.6.30-rc1. I'm running bisect now, but
there's a limit on how often I can reboot a production server, so I'll
report back when I find it.

The unfortunate part, of course, is that when this bug occurs, the
writepage never returns...meaning that the process in question is
permanently locked in la-la-land (AKA state D). This renders this
unfortunate bug a bit...inconvenient.

[No other clients, or the server, report anything interesting when this
happens, AFAICS.]

Ah say, son, you're about as sharp as a bowlin' ball.
