Try whatever you like. However, if the case that failed before doesn't fail now,
I'd call the test a success.

Thanks, rick
ps: It looks like Kostik is going to work on converting the NFS vop_putpages() 
      using the buffer cache. However, if this isn't ready for head/current by 
      I will commit this patch to help fix things in the meantime.

So, I've copied the patched kernel over, and apparently it's working
properly. I'm not getting the error anymore.

So far I've only did a quick test, should I do something more extensive,
like build a couple of ports or something over NFS?
