If you create a directory named /var/lib/nfs/v4recovery/, does the
problem go away?

My guess would be that it's trying to upcall to the new reboot-recovery
state daemon, and you don't have that running.

Before the addition of that upcall state was kept in
/var/lib/nfs/v4recovery. So we decide whether to use the old method or
the new one by checking for the existance of that path.

But I'm guessing we were wrong to assume that existing setups that
people perceived as working would have that path, because the failures
in the absence of that path were probably less obvious.
