Escalated to Bugzilla from IssueTracker
The customer is seeing this on 2.4.21-27.0.1.EL, and is unable to test with the
latest kernel at this time. However, I have confirmed that there are nochanges
to the lockd code between their release and 2.4.21-32.0.1.EL. They are running
the ia64 kernel.

Here is a upstream patch that may fixes a dead lock
int the lockd code. Its not clear to me that this could fix
your problem, but it might be worth a try...
