Additionally I can offer the following script to generate recalls,
which don't really happen during normal operation.  I don't
really know how to write a proper testcase that coordinates access
to the exported filesystem and nfs unless it runs locally on the same node,
though.  It would need some higher level, network aware test harness:

----- snip -----
#!/bin/sh

set +x

# wait for grace period
touch /mnt/nfs1/foo

dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/nfs1/foo bs=128M count=32 conv=fdatasync oflag=direct &

sleep 2

echo "" > /mnt/test/foo && echo "recall done"
