I'm sorry, but this makes no sense at all.

1) you can't mount a char device on a mountpoint
2) even if you could, mounting a block device over NFS like this won't work
3) I'm not sure what the "root@" is supposed to mean here, but that's not valid
syntax for a NFS mount either

I'm going to go ahead and close this as NOTABUG. Please reopen if you have more
info about why it is one.
