Just to throw my hat into the ring on this one...

I've noticed the 'blocking' effect on our Adaptec controller too: it
seems to occur when the process that is running requires/demands a full
disk sync.  Given the nature of our setup, with lots of systems running
on UPSen, I'm happy to use 'async' for NFS, which obviously helps
