SubjectRe: PROBLEM: nfs & "Warning - running *really* short on DMA buffers"
   Replying to myself, i found out that in kernel 2.4.20-pre5, the 
section responsible for the warning has a #if 0 #endif around it .
This was not the case in 2.4.19 btw. I had rate limited the warning,
but it's not needed.

Thanks to everybody,
Pedro
