Sorry that was more of a hassle than it could have been....  It would be
nice to try rewriting the cthon tests for xfstests, if that would help
catch nfs-related bugs sooner.  I don't have the time for now, though.

Merging a topic branch like this looks like it should work fine, anyway.

    nfsd: merge cookie collision fixes from ext4 tree
    These changes fix readdir loops on ext4 filesystems with dir_index

    conflicting) patches to the same code before the next merge window.
