OK, thanks.
Now, in case the NFS client is idling during the time the fs is unmounted, 
and I revert the whole thing (e.g., remount, re-export, restart mountd) 
before the client tries to access the import again, will it resume normal 
operation afterwards?
E.g., if I try to do the fsck during a period where almost everybody is 
out of office, am I right to assume that only those few people not out of 
office will be affected at all?
