So far so good.  I updated to the latest, including jfv's revision from this AM.

With the 6.1 ISO distribution, I would get watchdogs within seconds of
starting a file transfer (except giant locked which worked fine).

With RELENG_6 I've transfered 100's of GB via ftp and NFS over both
ethernet ports and no problems yet.

Thanks for all the hard work!
