NetBSD 2.99.11 NetBSD 2.99.11 (NET4501) #0: Thu Dec 16 23:12:51 CET 2004 i386
Architecture: i386

At least some of the recent NFS changes commited on 2004/12/14 ([1], [2])
cause my netbooted Soekris net4501 to panic when copying files from a NFS
mounted filesystem to a FFS on CF.

I'll try to describe the problem here, but since I'm not very familiar with
NFS it's possible that I miss some important things. If so please tell
what kind of information I should provide.


I just netboot the net4501 (which mounts all filesystems via NFS from a
NetBSD-current system), create a FFS filesystem on the compact flash card,
mount it, copy a file from a NFS to the CF. If it doesn't panic already I
execute sync(8) which reliably causes a panic.

(/mnt/cf is the FFS on CF; the remaining filesystems are NFS mounted)
