Am I right that all you did was ls -l <root of nfs mount> ? Does OS/2
supports the notion of ".." directory ? Could you do just "ls -l .."
from nfs client and then try "stat <root of exported fs>" on the server
(i think it shall hang) ?

My hypothesis is that LOOKUP RPC for ".." causes directory vnode lock
leak in nfs_namei. After that, mountd hang is just consequence.
