Trouble with nfs mount

Hi Guix,

I'm having some issues with my nfs storage on Guix System.

Here is the part of my configuration that deals with mounting the nfs

  (define nfs-valhalla
     (device "fafner:/srv/nfs4/Valhalla")
     (mount-point "/media/Valhalla")
     (options "auto,_netdev,timeo=10")
     (type "nfs4")
     (mount? #f)
     (check? #f)))

   ;; …
     ;; …

cat /etc/fstab:
  fafner:/srv/nfs4/Valhalla     /media/Valhalla nfs4    auto,_netdev,timeo=10   

As you can see Guix creates it just fine in /etc/fstab. I can manually
mount it. But if it's mounted when I'm shutting down the system it will
block. Sheperd will wait for some process to finish (which I assume is
the nfs mount). It works fine if I manually unmount it before shutting

If I set it to mount on boot, it wont reach the tty prompt. Instead it
will get stuck somewhere along the boot process (grub menu to the
rescue). I do see shepherd failing to mount it after I've run guix
system reconfigure.

shepherd: Evaluating user expression (and (defined? (quote transient?)) (map (# 
?) ?)).
guix system: warning: exception caught while executing 'start' on service 
In procedure mount: mount "fafner:/srv/nfs4/Valhalla" on "///media/Valhalla": 
Invalid argument
guix system: warning: some services could not be upgraded

So that's probably what's happening during boot.

I have no idea how it transforms the mount-point from "/media/Valhalla"
to "///media/Valhalla" and if that's a red herring.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
