I'm sorry.. but I don't know how you guys tested this, but using a
bare-bones configuration with the NFS translator and a mirror
configuration between two systems (no performance translators, etc.) I
can lock up the entire system after writing 160-180megs of data.

dd if=/dev/full of=testfile bs=1M count=1000 is enough to lock the
entire machine.

This is on a CentOS 5.4 system with a xen backend (for testing).

I don't know what you guys tested with, but I can't get this stable...
at all.
