I just spent a good 30 minutes on the phone with a Sun rep regarding
101945-33T. It appears that everyone and their grandmother is calling
Sun requesting this patch. The official word is to stop shipping this
rev unless there is a serious requirement. There was no estimate on
the official release date for rev 33.

As far as rev 29 goes... The Sun rep told me to _not_ apply it.
Apparently it fixes the NFS client bug, but, introduces another (they
haven't narrowed it down, but, believe is has to do with RPC) bug.
Standard stuff. Fix one bug, introduce two new bugs.
