Well, as far as I can tell, on Intel this is caused by libc using
uint64_t as a dev_t, and the kernel using short as dev_t. I created
some fixes in the nfs-0.4.22 stuff, and now it works quite well. Under
the provision that the client does not try to establish the
whereabouts from a server by sending a null packet to the
server. (Ultrix 4.3 does this unfortunately)

I think this is not arch related....
