Re: nbd request too big

Hi,

If you're using the nbd-server from Pavel Machek's web site, you'll need to patch
nbd-server.c to make it work on ~2.4.3+ kernels. My patched version of nbd-server.c
and cliserv.h are attached. The patched files make the server's request buffer be
dynamically allocated, so any size request can be handled by the server.
The patched version also fixes some other outdated code (e.g., llseek -> lseek64).
