Yes, the patch makes sense.
I've checked both: /home and /usr/local with xfs_check and with xfs_repair -n
No warning, no error.

I have removed /var/tmp, which is a reiserfs, from /etc/exports
but it was seldom used (if any).

Thanks for your effort. I will now closely follow any nfs related patches.
