Sorry for the misunderstanding, but I think that the 'NFS via TCP' thread
covers other bugs, ie the inability to mount NFS v3 over TCP.

I've tested the cards above, and the person I replied to encountered the
same bug with a bge card. My solution was to remove custom nfs settings
in sysctl.conf. I don't know which one was the culprit because I don't
have the time to look into it further.

My poking uncovered a set of crashing bugs and potentially a livelock.
I would agree that NFS is very fragile in RELENG_6.
So far <fingers crossed> I've not run into an NFS server deadlock you
