Subject[2.6.8-rc4] New nfsd-related kernel panic
The following patch of 09Aug is causing kernel panics:

$bk get -D fs/nfsd/nfsxdr.c
< int len;
> unsigned int len;
< int len;
> unsigned int len;

I can cause a kernel panic by mounting the remote filesystem
read-only and merely copying a moderately large tarball from it.
(The linux-kernel source tarball, for example.)

The panic occurs every time, after only a second or two at most.
It's so easy to reproduce that I haven't copied down the backtrace,
but I will if no one else can reproduce the problem.

Anyone else seeing this?
