 The nfsm_wcc_data() macro calls the nfsm_postop_attr() macro.
 The nfsm_postop_attr() macro calls nfsm_loadattrcache() function.
 The nfsm_loadattrcache() function calls nfsm_disct() function.
 nfsm_disct() is the function in error which drops the mbuf chain.
 nfs_subs.c:968 is the line in error:
            do {
                     m2 = m_get(M_WAIT, MT_DATA);
                     MCLAIM(m2, m1->m_owner);
                     if (left >= MINCLSIZE) {
                             MCLGET(m2, M_WAIT);
                     m2->m_next = *nextp; <-- BUG happens here!!
                     *nextp = m2;
                     nextp = &m2->m_next;
