SubjectNFSD die with 2.4.1 (resend with ksymoops)
Date

Hi all,
I have a machine with kernel 2.4.1 + acls patch. It exports some volume via
NFS (installed with RedHat 7.0 + custom 2.4.1 kernel). The underlying
filesystem is ext2. I tried with NFS v2 and v3 and without ACLs in the
kernel. results are the same.

The problem is that NFSD dies unexpectedly with a Oops (see below).
When booting, I have 8 NFSD processes, but suddenly, they all die. I can't
see why it happens, because the machine is a production one and I can't
reboot it too often. But when I reboot, all is fine for a moment. And
suddenly, the 8 NFSD die altogether... Last time, I rebooted the machine at
23h00 and NFSD died ~ 9h36 next day : 10h uptime!
When running lsmod, nfsd.o has 8 locks even after NFSD died, so it's
impossible to make a rmmod (the 8 NFSD processes don't give their ressources
back).
I tried to put NFSD in the kernel directly, without modules. Same thing.
Anyone have similar problems?
Thanks for any help on that topic

Bye
