I had thought of it, and now I've tried and it works indeed.
(The kernel has do do a reconnect on the TCP socket after the
failover which is a little bit more noisy.)

But it should work with UDP as well, because there is no point
in paying the TCP overhead in a local network and because it
works with every other NFS client around here.
