I've been doing lots of nfs testing on 2.6.12 + oss.sgi.com CVS and
current 2.6.13-rc TOT the last days and it works just fine.  Did you try
exporting a real partitions instead of a loopback blockdevice?  While
I don't know what problems a loop device could cause this is on of the
odd things in your setup.  The other is of course an odd gentoo build,
but I don't know how even gentoo folks could mess up nfs exporting.
