I just masked the input to txdr_unsigned() to 0x7fffffff before assigning it to sfp->sf_*; did a build of tools, kernel=RPI2 and distribution; and put the new kernel and nfsserver.kmod in place. Now I can compile & assemble from my Sun!

The Raspberry Pi 3B+ has been plenty fast at rebuilding everything. After all, even the original Raspberry Pi is *way* faster than a stock SPARCstation 20. ;)

Unfortunately I can't share my actual code without jumping through some bureaucratic hoops, but hopefully knowing that this works is sufficient for someone to put a more complete fix than my quick hack into mainline. :)
