    Heavy NFS load significantly increases the probability of GFP_ATOMIC or
    GFP_DMA memory allocations failing. There are also other things that will
    start to happen at this load (clustering attempts fail, the request queue is
    full, buffer cache grow/shrink). Is it worth trying these one at a time -
    eg a 4 item request queue and seeing if you can break it.
