NFS nfsStBlksize and buffer overflows (NFS RPC: Timed out)

My client is having problems similar to that described here:
I don't understand the details, or why one needs to limit the I/O size based on the ethernet chip set, but I did verify that cpukit/libfs/src/nfsclient/src/nfs.c does not have changes described in the email and that changing nfs.c and then setting nfsStBlksize to 4096 before calling nfsInit() works around the issue. This is on the phycore_mpc5554 BSP with the smc91111 ethernet chip.
I'll gladly submit a bug and a patch for nfs.c, but I don't fully understand the issue. I could just describe the bug as "NFS does not honor nfsStBlksize" and submit it as that.
Does this make sense or is there a more fundamental bug at a different level?
