Description Mike McLean 2003-02-24 18:33:48 UTC
* kernel-2.4.20-2.54

Recompiling the kernel on an nfs mount from localhost, this time *without* any
loopback devices.  I wind up with several processes listed as __down_failed.

Will attach details.

Note that I have used N=M=0 in this case, which means that loopback devices are
not used at all.
