	CFS hangs during file reads.  It's possible to cattach the
	directory, and walk the directory tree, but attempts to
	read or write files causes a hang.  I've filed this under pkg,
	but I suspect that the issue is some change in the NFS
	mechanisms in the kernel -- CFS works by emulating an NFS server.
	Start up CFS, cattach a directory, and try to read a file in it.
