Description of problem:
statfs on NFS partition always returns 0 regardless of success/fail. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start NFS service:
    # echo "/test        *(rw,no_root_squash)" >> /etc/exports
    # service nfs start
2. Setup client:
    # mount -t nfs -o soft,timeo=5 server:/test /mnt/nfs
3. Stop NFS service:
    # service nfs stop
4. From the client, run the attached test program:

Actual results:
The program returns with 0, which actually should return negative number according to statfs(2) but returns 0. 

Expected results: 
Should return negative number. 

According to the call trace nfs_statfs is not returning the value properly. 
sys_statfs() => return 0
  vfs_statfs() => return 0
    nfs_statfs() => return 0
      nfs3_proc_statfs() => return -5

The patch is already upstream:

I've added the above patch to my test kernels:


...if you or they are able to test it and verify that it works, then that would be helpful.
