hmmm.....  this reminds me of the issue I encountered with NFS clients
getting weird errors while building floppy images in 'make release'....

Indeed what you say is kinda what I thought based on my past experiences
and reading, but that makes me wonder about the issue that caused the
fix to PR#5844 to be undone.  If there can be only one active mount in
the kernel per filesystem then what possible information can be left
"stuck" in the kernel when a given filesystem is unexported?
