SubjectRe: 2.4.8 NFS Problems
Date
Did some more testing this A.M.

Soft Mount:
Took me several tries -- had to run a tiobench on the server side to
make for some I/O contention. Was able to get EIO error (since this is Sat
the system was pretty idle).
Hard Mount:
Unable to reproduce even though 10 second timeouts could be seen.
Soft Mount (retrans=5)
Unable to reproduce

Could be the interaction with ext3 where I/O gets bound up a while. Just
long enough to trigger the timeouts for a soft mount.
