And that seems to be the time my errors started occurring was with 
2.6.26 - but the problem is that I need a new kernel for some other 
patches on the master backend, and an older kernel on the slave backend 
for a particular blaster, so I guess I'll grin & bear it for now.  Right 
now I have to restart NFS every few days, not too big a hassle.
