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.
