Upon accessing the /data/sub part of the CIFS share, the client hung, waiting for the server to respond (the [cifs] kernel thread on the client was spinning, waiting for i/o). On the server, similar things as with the nfsd processes happened

Turns out that the CIFS only hung because the server was already stuck because of the nfsd/XFS issue. After rebooting the server, I was able to access the CIFS shares (the xfs partition too) just fine. Yes, the xfs partition itsself has been checked too and no errors were found.
