Odd pagebuf message

While copying a large number of large files to one of my XFS partitions
I got two of these messages from the kernel:

        pagebuf: out of preallocated buffer heads, sleeping.

Is this anything to be concerned about?  The copy (from an NFS
mounted filesystem to a local filesystem) proceeded normally otherwise.

The machine is using Friday morning's (12/14/01) CVS 2.4.16 kernel
and the filesystem is 420Gb on a 3Ware 7850 controller running RAID-5.
Machine has 1Gb of RAM.  Anything else pertinent?

Happy holiday season to all!

- David
