Are you sure that kern/79700 describes your problem?
( I don't see how higher load is related to the problem)
If it does - mounting the file systems without the "intr" option would
be the workaround since it prevents suspension of the threads inside the
NFS file system. (More technical details in my answer to kern/79700)
