The rpcb_getport_async function in the sunrpc module copies larger
memory area than the allocated on Ubuntu Hardy.
Because of this problem, NFS users might encounter oops. See Bug #224750.

This bug is derived from Linux 2.6.24 in kernel.org.
It seems to be fixed on Linux 2.6.25 in kernel.org by the commit

I don't know how important it is for Ubuntu users, but I made the
patch to solve it, which is the attachment.
