Hi Andrew,

nice to hear you.

All i can say is that the kernel compiles and runs.

On my testbox I can't reproduce the fs crash, seems is more stable 
than 2.6.30/31.

I've tried Erics steps to reproduce for 2.6.30/31, tried stressing the nfs 
mount with iozone, tried recursive unpacking and removing eclipse (a lot of 
small files) and this in a lot of parallel tasks.

Nothing triggers the bug.
You know, if I can't reproduce it I can't say whether it is fixed or not.

I'll update one server this week with the patched kernel and switch nfs on 
again, and wait then for the next crash. Hope that comes never.
