To echo Roland's comments, and call for something new:

netfs is being stretched *way* beyond its intentions here.  I would
much rather see a *new* library, parallel to netfs and diskfs, that
was designed for things like local directory servers with weird
behavior, for which trivfs is too restrictive.

I would encourage thought about just where netfs is inadequate (more
broadly than this one issue) and think about a new library that works
well for it--and for other localish things that aren't really netfs's
area of expertise.
