Yes, pre-existing. I'm trying to bisect it, the issue is already in 7d3107d.

But every attempt to get the first bad commit before that commit id
failed till now. I started many attempts between v3.10 and 7d3107d. I
could not reproduce that issue 100% in that interval. In that interval
either all tested commits doesn't show the issue or the NFS client hangs
during the stop of NFS service infinitely - and counting that as a "bad"
commit doesn't work.

FWIW a single test case currently takes 2 1/2 hour and even then I do
not fully trust the result (except for a bad commit, that's clear.
