Subject: RE: cifs causes BUG: soft lockup detected on CPU

Thanks for your response!

I've tried different kernel versions.
Right now iam using generic 2.6.9-42 on one machine and 2.6.20.1 on
another one.
I also tried various distributions ( Suse, CentOS, RHEL4 ) - not sure it
is relevant.
Tried installing latest cifs modules, tried changing CIFSMaxBufSize to
15000,  without luck.
Freezes are totally random - sometimes they happen 2-4 times a day,
sometimes it can take 2 weeks.
Running cifs in debug mode gave following output right before crash (
should it come handy ):

You didn't tell us what kernel version you're running.

Hanging in generic_fillattr: i_size_read() got stuck.  This is because
CIFS doesn't correctly hold i_mutex across i_size_write().

Steve, where are we up to with the fixes for that?
