I lost some mails from Tim (maybe my MTA sucks...), so I'm replying to myself.
I sent the patch to stable at kernel.org,
but I don't think it will be accepted because the maintenance of
2.6.24.y has finished.

> 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.
