[Gluster-users] cannot access /mnt/glusterfs: Stale NFS file handle

I've mounted my glusterfs share as I always do:
mount -t glusterfs `hostname`:/bhl-volume /mnt/glusterfs

and I can see it in df:
# df -h | tail -n1
clustr-01:/bhl-volume        90T   51T   39T  57% /mnt/glusterfs

but I can't change into it, or access any of the files in it:
# ls -al /mnt/glusterfs
ls: cannot access /mnt/glusterfs: Stale NFS file handle

Any idea what could be causing this? It was working fine last week (in
fact I haven't remounted it in months and have had clients accessing
it constantly), but we did do a reboot across all 6 of the nodes over
the weekend.

details and version numbers:
