So, if I understand you right, we can create rpc client (or increase usage

Will this solution works?

The rpc client(s) will need to be per-net-namespace, which complicates
matters a little bit, but yes, creation at NSMPROC_MON, and destruction
at NSMPROC_UNMON should work.

Hi, Trond.
With reference-counted NSM client I got this:

There are more places, where NFS and Lockd code dereference utsname().
In XDR layer, for instance.

So, probably, we have to tie NFS to utsns as well as to netns.
Add one more ns to xprt? What do you think?
