Running NetBSD 1.5.2 GENERIC_LAPTOP on NS MediaGX Geode based SBC, I 
occasionaly see the following message:

/netbsd: WARNING: mclpool limit reached; increase NMBCLUSTERS

Is this an indication that I need to change something in a config file 
and recompile the kernel?

I am using the hardware for a file server and have a small mix of Linux 
and Solaris Intel machines using NFS and a couple of Win2K machines 
using SMB. The load on the machine is never, in my opinion, stressful, 
but once in a while (a day, a week, take bets...) I also sometimes 
receive this message and the machine dumps:

privileged instruction fault trap, code=0
stopped in nfsd at    nfsrv_getattr+0x4d0

The machine is a little flakey to begin with (problems booting, etc...) 
that I've always attributed to the hardware (Geode's seem to be error
