kill -9 does nothing

I don't think this is an NFS problem. I had got the same problem with Apache + ZFS combination (but it was an old FreeBSD version like 7-8, I don't remember). The main point is that the process hangs in iowait state, which it never will exit from. The only solution is hard reboot. The reason of that is rather more complicated, than just "NFS is bad", or "Apache is bad". This is an Open Source, and you could always help with a patch, extensive debug info to clarify the bug, etc, so any help will be appreciated.
