No, pure 2.4.6 and the xfs patch above, nothing else, but...

You know what? I just put the kgcc compiled one in and now it seems to
work! Ain't that a thing. The previous compile was done with RedHat
package gcc-c++-2.96-81.

Btw, when I was running 2.4.5 the whole thing with NFS worked fine for a
couple hours of very light use. Then it just stopped and a message on the
server console appeared, saying something about "bug in namei.c! Fsck?".
There was also the usual large amount of numbers and stuff, but I couldn't
be bothered to write it all down. After that it stopped working.

Anyway, it seems to work now, compiled with compat-egcs-6.2- I'll
let you know if there are problems.
