Bug#599131: unusable on GNU/kFreeBSD

Package: unfs3
Version: 0.9.22+dfsg-2
Severity: grave
User: debian-bsd@lists.debian.org
Usertags: kfreebsd

Running unfs3 on GNU/kFreeBSD resulted in multiple I/O errors in client
side (client boots via nfsroot and was initially able to startup, but
soon became unusable due to read errors).

Server logged this message a few times:

  Sep 22 12:12:33 thorin unfsd[1848]: unable to send RPC reply

Unfortunately I lack the time to debug this.  If noone can fix it, I'd
recommend excluding kfreebsd-{i386,amd64} builds of this package for the
time being.

Side note for users:

I notice unfs3 is currently the only NFS server available in Debian

A possible alternative would be NFS-Ganesha [1], which supports nfsv4
and, interestingly, other backends than POSIX (including ZFS backend),
but it isn't packaged in Debian, and I haven't verified it works on
GNU/kFreeBSD either.
