So returning to the NFS - the patches held up for 24 hours under various loads
with no crashes or other such ill effects.
So I think the NFS patches are good to go.

The Lustre patches I only tried my own and those seem to be doing well too.
Do you want me to send you my Lustre patches just for this issue, or send
everything to Greg as usual?
