I think this should also be fixed by the patch I've sent:
(74946415a "fs: Fix link_path_walk to return -ENOENT on empty path")

This patch might not have fixed this exact case when running the nfs
command. Have you been able to repoduce this issue with this patch
applied ?

I've havn't tried to setup a net interface to debug nfs commandi,
instead I was using simpler command such as `md5sum ""`.
