Nice!  Will you commit it?

Is there some “negative caching” in the kernel module possibly that will not retry the mount for another time or something—as in if I were more patient and waited 5 minutes, would it maybe just have worked again?

There is no negative caching.  I'll see if I can figure out the cause
for this.
