Ok, please make this so, so that we finally can effectively get rid of
the BKL in this release (I don't really care about the random old
drivers that may be "depends on BKL").

But that obviously requires at least some minimal testing by somebody
who is using NFS heavily, including locking. I assume that the
connectathon tests include file locking? And I presume that the nfs
developers run those at least semi-regularly and could do at least
that kind of minimal testing?
