Are you by chance using pf "scrub" rules on the network interface your
OpenBSD server has Linux NFS client communication on? There are known
problems with pf "scrub" rules causing Linux NFS clients to hang. I was
bitten by this problem a few months back with my Linux NFS clients and
removing the "scrub" rules from the network interface my server had the
NFS traffic on solved the problem for me.
