 This is a problem with the usage of interruptible sleep in the NFS code.
 The following description of the problem in NetBSD should be close
 enough to the FreeBSD problem.

 I don't think this will be fixed anytime soon and I recommend not using
 the "intr" option.
 ( In my opinion the "intr" option should never be used during normal
 operation since file operations may not behave as expected by programs )
