	Run two kvm VMs that share the same disk.  Create an XFS
	filesystem on the MDS, and export it.  If the client has blkmapd
	running (on Debian it needs to be started manually) it will use
	pNFS for accessing the filesystem.  Verify that using the
	per-operation counters in /proc/self/mounstats.  Repeat with
	additional clients as nessecary.

	Alternatively set up a simple iSCSI target using tgt or lio and
	connect to it from multiple clients.

Which sounds reasonable to me, but I haven't tried to incorporate this
into my regression testing yet.
