That was exactly the next thing I was going to suggest :) I think the 
fhandle can be different sizes though, but if it is always round-up to 
have only full blocks of 4 bytes, it should work just fine.

Could you pass the patch that you've used? I'll review and verify it 
a little too.

However, you should open a service request at Oracle to let them know 
that their DNFS client should encode the fhandle in correct XDR (with 
roundup bytes to make full 4 byte blocks).
