A brave soul :^)

See if sys/ufs/lfs/lfs_vnops.c rev 1.177 helps any.

I hadn't tried exporting LFS in quite some time (years, maybe) until I 
read your message; so you may run into other difficulties beyond this one.

A cursory test here (downloading and unpacking all the sources and 
building sparc64 GENERIC on an NFS-mounted LFS) mostly works for me, 
although I am seeing occasional deadlocks with nfsd sleeping in "lfsput" 
that I haven't had time to investigate.

NFS being what it is, rebooting the server allows the client to proceed 
without incident :^/

Take care,
