are you using interruptible nfs mount?
in that case, nfs uses PCATCH/cv_wait_sig for I/O and can be
suspended by user.
ups@ suggested introducing something like PCATCH|PNOSUSPEND while ago.
i think that an alternative is not suspending LWPs in the middle of
sleepq_block.  ie. suspend LWPs only on user-kernel boundaries.
