    I am currently running stock 2.2.9 without other problems that
    very bad behaviour during NFS reading (already posted) [compared
    to <= 2.2.7 series].

    2.2.7-ac1 works fine, but 2.2.7-ac4 exhibits the loop in
    truncate_inode_pages().
    2.2.9 works fine (see above), but 2.2.9-ac1 loops.
