Looking at for the actual oops...

It doesn't remind me of any known issue.

And I don't see how we can call vfs_statfs() with a bad path:
nfsd4_encode_getattr would have to have been called with nfserr 0 and
ga_fhp->fh_export bad.

Looking at nfsd4_proc_compound, I can't see how we could get there in
the op->status == 0 case without the fh_verify() in nfsd4_getattr having
succeeded and assigned the result to ga_fhp.

So either I'm overlooking something or the bug's elsewhere.

It sounds like you're varying *only* the server version, so there's not
much chance that this could be triggered by changes in client behavior?
