Well, I'd guess that is the following source line:
 		if (rdonly || (vp->v_mount->mnt_flag & MNT_RDONLY)) {
since "mnt_flag" is way down in the structure and MNT_RDONLY == 0x1.

This suggests that v_mount is no longer valid, but I have no idea why that
might happen. (This was looking at the -current nfsserver sources, but I
don't think they've changed much.

Maybe someone who knows ZFS and how it handles the mount structure might
have some idea?
