All operations that require filesystem locks. They are queued up
behind some task that has grabbed a filesystem lock and is hung, IOW
these tasks are innocent victims of the real problem. 99.9%
probability that the real problem is a hung NFS event.
If you have kdb installed and active, drop into kdb and
set LOGGING 1
The trace will show what the hung tasks are waiting on.
