Trouble with NFSd under 6.1-Stable, any ideas?

   Hello Rong-en,

As an update, I did the below, and I still had the issue with either version
of vfs_lookup.c compiled in and running.   

On the bright side, I didn't realize you could step through the cvs by date,
guess I just never paid attention.  So I just stepped back to 'tag=RELENG_6
date=2006.' on my server, rebuilt and violla nfs is now running

 So backing out something has fixed my problem, now to figure out just what it
was.   As I don't know what has caused this, I have done complete buildworlds
to make sure everything updates which takes a few hours.    I am going to
start moving the cvs date forward till I get the problem back, once I nail
this down a bit more, I'll let you know what I come up with.
