	when mounting an NFS drive from i386 server onto a current arm32 machine I get file corruptiong.  Seems to occur after a lot of traffic, eg make release with source on nfs mount.
	eg: gnu/dist/gcc/global.c at about line 1597 
	arm32 mounted shows:
	  if (reg_renumber[dest_regno] >= 0)
    		dest_regno = reg_renum`er[dest_regno];
	and i386 local shows:
	 if (reg_renumber[dest_regno] >= 0)
    		dest_regno = reg_renumber[dest_regno];
	make release (from clean) on nfs mount seems to manage to trigger it, unmounting and remounting the nfs mount clears it.
	None, I'll try newer kernels this weekend, I do remember having the same problem a long time ago, but it's not happened for a while (but it's been a while since I did a near complete from scratch make release).
