    Subject[regression] NFS readdir change break fully cached nfs root

    My NFS root test systems stopped booting with 2.6.37-rc1. It just
    hangs after entering user space.

    The NFS root setup uses a slightly fancy parameter setup to minimize
    network traffic:

    nfsroot=,nocto,acregmin=86400,acregmax=86400,acdirmin=86400,acdirmax=86400 root=/dev/nfs

    I bisected it down to this commit from Bryan.

    Unfortunately it's not trivially revertable because that conflicts
    with later patches.
