RHEL 4.5 was a disaster of an upgrade:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=327591

Redhat took all of the upstream nfs client "fixes" that google primarily wrote and backported them to RHEL4. It did not go so well. The best thing I got out of working on this bug was ninja-level nfs debugging experience. See comment 8 for the secret sauce.

NFS client patches that google wrote?

Are you confusing google (no interest in NFS) with NetApp which employs Trond, the upstream client maintainer?
