1) The file system was created and existing prior to upgrading to 11.1 - I am not sure, but would think, that would leave the inode-size as is.

It would leave it in an upgrade install, but not with a fresh install with
reformat.

2) I re-installed Grub from the RPMs that come with 11.1, so in case the inode sizes were somehow increased as part of the upgrade, the newer grub would see it.

I thought that you wrote earlier that your original Grub was having a problem
with 11.1.
Thanks for the reply Felix, the system was oss 11.0 with grub on it and working fine. It was upgraded to oss 11.1, and still worked fine. Then I made a custom kernel, installed it (done this many times with many different versions of oss), and on a reboot the problem surfaced.
