Probably deadlock.

The same guy that made the swap over NFS patches had worked on patches 
for iscsi too. When the iscsi patches were in the same patchset as the 
nfs ones he was ccing the list I thought. I think because he had to 
rework patches for usptream comments and because the iscsi code changed 
on him which broke the iscsi patches, he was just maintaining the nfs 
patches for now.

I have not been keeping up with the nfs patches. Did they go upstream?
