starting rpc.nfsd results in freezing console


Hello

Distribution: gentoo
Kernelversion: 2.6.34-gentoo-r12
CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) Dual Core Processor 4850e


After migrating to a new motherboard and to a new kernel (from 2.6.29-gentoo-r5 to 2.6.34-gentoo-r12), I find the nfsd no longer working.

Trying to start it either with /etc/init.d/rpc.nfsd or directly via the command line results in a console freeze. Logging in onto another console is possible. If I however issue a command (like 'ls') it freezes as well.

The nfsd kernel module seems to load fine: Loading it manually, I get the following messages in /var/log/messages:
Nov 27 10:49:25 ztron [ 350.758128] RPC: Registered udp transport module.
Nov 27 10:49:25 ztron [ 350.758131] RPC: Registered tcp transport module.
Nov 27 10:49:25 ztron [ 350.758133] RPC: Registered tcp NFSv4.1 backchannel transport module.
Nov 27 10:49:25 ztron [ 350.806180] Installing knfsd (copyright (C) 1996 okir@monad.swb.de).


I could need some help ....

Thanks

Tilman

PS I posted it in the kernel news group as I feel that it is more related to the kernel than to networking.

I compiled the nfs modules hard into the kernel (not as loadable modules). Now it works and the console no longer freezes.

Is this a bug in the kernel code ? Can I report this somehow to the kernel developper
