Actually, Justin, can you test the following slight variant on the patch
in the bugzilla?

Subject: [PATCH] NFS: Fix spurious readdir cookie loop messages

If the directory contents change, then we have to accept that the
file->f_pos value may shrink if we do a 'search-by-cookie'. In that
case, we should turn off the loop detection and let the NFS client
try to recover.
