SubjectKernel panic in tcp_time_to_recover with 2.6.9
Date
Got a kernel panic at tcp_time_to_recover+75/1d0 on two nodes
(diskless except for swap) mounting the root fs via NFS
(v3,tcp). Those are linux-vserver hosts.

Although it might be unrelated, the memory usage, which was at
3.5GB total (1.5GB highmem, 2/2 split) showed an abrupt decrease of
cached memory one hour before the panic (about 0.5GB freed) on one
node. No unusual network activity was observed there.

The second node showed a similar decrease about 4 hours before the
crash (dropped from 3.5GB to 2.5GB, again cache was shrinked) half an
hour later, the cache was up and memory usage reached
3.5GB again. during this period the network traffic was higher than
usual in both directions.

You can find memory graphs of those nodes here:

http://rs.rhapsodyk.net/vserver/memory-second.png

The first node crashed a few minutes before the second and vservers
where started on the second one at that time (could be a network
attack which caused that)

A similar panic was already reported by George Clover

Those are dual PIII machines with 4GB Ram connect with two e1000 NICs,
one in GigE for internal network other in FastE for public network.

Patches used are the linux-vserver vs1.9.3 patch and the NFS_ALL
patches from:
http://linux-nfs.org/Linux-2.6.x/2.6.9/linux-2.6.9-NFS_ALL.dif
