Ah..I just noticed the changes in the nfsd code.

But in 2.6.27.10, can it be fixed by removing the lock_super in the
vfat_lookup.?
Because I saw some discussions long back of regressions due to
replacing lock_kernel by lock_super in FAT code.
Or should the sb mutex be unlocked before calling the callback filldir
in the __fat_readdir?

Thanks,
Fredrick
