    Seems like it. :)

    Yes - We had those errors to:

    "Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempting to free lock with active block list"

    - on 2.6.10 on the webservers, which was fixed with that particular patch. But
    this is a different error as our mailservers dont't act as NFS clients. All
    use local XFS.

    Sad thing is that the mailservers crashes every 10-20 hours on 2.6.x, but I'm
    not able to reproduce it in a test environment, and at time of original post
    to LKML noone was able to do anything about it without a reproduceable
    testcase. :(

    OK, as far as i remember, we had the same messages in the kernel log when
    running with SMP.
