It seems to the case for all combinations of backend versions and re-export versions.

But it does look like it is related to readahead somehow. The default for a client mount is 128k ....

I just increased it to 1024 on the client mount of the originating server on the re-export server and now it's doing the expected 1MB (rsize) read requests back to onprem from the clients all the way through. i.e.

echo 1024 > /sys/class/bdi/0:52/read_ahead_kb

So, there is a difference in behaviour when reading from the client mount with user space processes or the knfsd threads on the re-export server.
