Sorry, just to be clear -- is the message you're getting on the NFS
client, or the NFS server?  Could you turn on debug.witness_ddb and get a
stack trace for the warning?

You appear to have the kernel debugging features turned to high (which
will be useful for resolving this problem :-).  Turn off WITNESS and
INVARIANTS and you should see a substantial performance improvement.  It
may not be back up to 4.x levels -- we hope that with ongoing network
stack locking work we'll be back to 4.x (and exceed them) in the next few
