The locking doesn't look right if the loop breaks on error.
(Same applied to patch v2 1/4)

Although list_fo_each_entry_safe() allows the current entry
to be freed, I don't believe it allows the 'next' to be freed.
I doubt there is protection against that happening.

Do you need to use an atomic_inc() for cl_count.
I'd guess the nfs_client_lock is usually held?
