df /mnt/foo and getmntent

The df(1) from coreutils 4.5.3 uses getmntent on Linux, and this seems
to cause the problem noted in the above bug report, namely:

"Imagine that /disk1 is NFS mounted (hard), and server1 is down.
 Server2, at the same time, is OK, and /disk2 is in fact available. I
 want to do my work on /disk2. But "df /disk2" blocks waiting for
 server1!  I don't need /disk1, and I don't want to know anything
 about it!"

Is there any way around this?
