To expand a little more on that:
Large back-to-back NFS packets do appear to work now. I'm using an 8k
block size again. However, it stills dies with `panic: receive 1'
It's conceivable that there's a compiler bug lurking in here. GCC 2.7
definitely has problems on the PowerPC with 64-bit values, and this
only seems to happen with NFS, not with other network traffic.
It's getting very close...
