I also just submitted https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=192379 
to allow -o vers= mount_nfs compatibility, which makes it easier to integrate 
with Linux/OSX/Solaris LDAP setups and mount options from LDAP.

I found one case now doing the aforementioned where when the initial mount_nfs 
fails (e.g., for invalid options), then a later mount did not succeed either, 
with the correct mount options;  I did try to run automount -u in between 
tries, as well as service automountd restart, but that did not make a change;  
given I was short on time, a reboot of my desktop made this go away.   Is there 
some “negative caching” in the kernel module possibly that will not retry the 
mount for another time or something—as in if I were more patient and waited 5 
minutes, would it maybe just have worked again?
