Hi all,

I'm just playing with an SRP connected NetApp system and just got an XFS related kernel panic. I guess it is due to large IO (32MiB). At least it just came up after enabling 32MiB device max_sectors. As the tests are running in a RHEL6 image and as I needed at least 2.6.39 to get a large srp_tablsize with SRP, I simply installed the lasted oracle uek kernel. If needed I'm going to update to a vanilla version.

Any idea or do I need to dig myself?

Thanks,
