(trimming the output)

Thanks. I don't really see anything obvious in that info,
unfortunately. What we really need to do is find the systemd task
performing the mount, and see what it's doing.

We do have one questionable bug in the NFS changes though. Does this
patch help at all?

SQUASH: nfs: fix i_version increment when adding a request

NFS treats this value as an opaque value with no flag, so we must
increment it as such instead of using inode_inc_iversion.

It's systemd 236.0-2 coming from Arch Linux for ARM. All packages are
updated.

Patches do not change anything (I tried "SQUASH: nfs: fix i_version
increment when adding a request" and "SQUASH: ext4: use raw API for
xattr inode refcounts").

I tried again regular SDcard-root boot and it succeeded. Only nfsroot
fails.

Best regards,
Krzysztof
