SubjectRe: is rpc_call blocking and wait for reponse before returning to the caller?

In newer kernels rpc_call is just a wrapper to rpc_call_sync() which is
the synchronous RPC call interface. That will always wait for a response
from the server before returning if the clnt->cl_soft flag is not set.

For asynchronous operation, there is rpc_call_async().
