    Bruce, I'm using nfs-utils-1.0.10-14.fc6 on an FC6 system with all latest
    FC6 patches. Using git-bisect I was able to find the patch which broke it:

    [NETNS]: Fix /proc/net breakage

    Well I clearly goofed when I added the initial network namespace support
    for /proc/net. Currently things work but there are odd details visible to
    user space, even when we have a single network namespace.

    Since we do not cache proc_dir_entry dentries at the moment we can just
    modify ->lookup to return a different directory inode depending on the
    network namespace of the process looking at /proc/net, replacing the
    current technique of using a magic and fragile follow_link method.

    To accomplish that this patch:
    - introduces a shadow_proc method to allow different dentries to
    be returned from proc_lookup.
    - Removes the old /proc/net follow_link magic
    - Fixes a weakness in our not caching of proc generic dentries.

    As shadow_proc uses a task struct to decided which dentry to return we can
    go back later and fix the proc generic caching without modifying any code
    that uses the shadow_proc method.

    With the above patch, rpc.mountd is unable to open /proc/fs/nfsd/filehandle.
    Strace shows:

    open("/proc/fs/nfsd/filehandle", O_RDWR|O_LARGEFILE) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

    Without the above patch, /proc/fs/nfsd is populated with a number of files,
    including "filehandle".
