Hi all,

Just a heads up for those having problems with Linux's kernel oplocks
(leases) and/or directory notifications.  2.4.19 has fixes for all the
know (to me) directory notification problems and 2.4.20-pre3 (and therefore
most likely 2.4.20) has fixes for all the kernel oplocks problems
know to me.

Please try these new kernels out if you are so inclined and feel free
to report any further problems to me.
