Something definitely happens when rebooting NFS clients from the 2.6.16.53
kernel to the 2.6.16.54 with the server already running 2.6.16.54. This
morning I had the server already running with the original, untainted
SLES10 kernel and rebooted 5 clients that were still running 2.6.16.53.

They all came up, but a minuter later the NFS server crashed so hard,
that I couldn't even see a console log anymore and had to hard reset it.
The server didn't come up again, it stopped at "LIL" so I have to boot
a rescue system now.

Today I will check if it also happens when rebooting clients that are
running the new kernel, too, or if it is just an imcompatibility between
the old and new kernel.

cu,
Frank
