            Bug ID: 256280
           Summary: FreeBSD nfsd serving zfs pool, linux nfsclient, often
                    hangs (not observed in 12-stable)
           Product: Base System
           Version: 13.0-STABLE
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: misc
          Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org

I am observing frequent nfs mount hang-ups after upgrading my NAS to 13-stable.
 FreeBSD here serves nfsd of a zfs pool.  A Gentoo Linux box is connected to
this NAS via a 10GbE fiber link.  Once a while, perhaps when the zfs load gets
high (afpd is running), the Linux side access to nfs hangs, then recovers after
a few minutes.  The following messages are printed in Linux's dmesg:

May 30 22:04:34 mayhome kernel: nfs: server not responding, still

But after a while, a few minutes or so, the access recovers:

May 30 22:06:35 mayhome kernel: nfs: server OK

This behavior is only observed after updating NAS to 13-stable via buildworld,
buildkernel procedure.  The Linux side remains the same and no hardware changed
on either side.  12-stable did not exhibit any of these.

The NAS's NIC serving nfsd is

t5nex0: <Chelsio T520-SO> mem
0xdd300000-0xdd37ffff,0xdc000000-0xdcffffff,0xdd884000-0xdd885fff irq 16 at
device 0.4 on pci1

cxl0: Ethernet address: 00:07:43:31:9c:80
cxl0: 8 txq, 8 rxq (NIC); 8 txq (TOE), 2 rxq (TOE)
cxl1: <port 1> on t5nex0
cxl1: Ethernet address: 00:07:43:31:9c:88
cxl1: 8 txq, 8 rxq (NIC); 8 txq (TOE), 2 rxq (TOE)
t5nex0: PCIe gen2 x8, 2 ports, 22 MSI-X interrupts, 54 eq, 21 iq
