Yes, the nfsd process only got stuck when I did ls(1) (with or without -l) on a NFS share which contained a XFS partition.
Since NFS was not working (the nfsd processes were already in D state), to
mount a CIFS share from the very same server (and the same client). I'm
exporting the same /data share (JFS), but, since it's smbd I don't have to
export every single submount (as it is with NFS):
* with NFS:
server:/data      (jfs)
server:/data/sub  (xfs)

* with CIFS:
server:/data      (containing both the jfs and the xfs partition as one
                   single share to mount)

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 (although I know that the smbd (Samba) processes are running completely in userspace):

Sysrq-t again on the server:

So, it's really not NFS but ?FS related?
