You didn't mention which kernel version of NFS client and which NFS
server. Both NFS client and knfsd are being worked on, so if you have a
problem I need to know which version. (Or perhaps I should say, please
test with the latest kernel ...)

There were some locking problems with knfsd, and 2.1.72 has changes to
correct the problems found so far.
