 wmii gives client/ a qid of 2. This is not a problem in itself, but
for linux's sake v9fs has to convert the qid to an inode number. On
32-bit machines, the qid->inode mapping resulted in 2->0. Apparently
an inode of zero acts as a sentinel, causing readdir to skip the entry
(if you inspect the dirent struct and nearby memory you can easily
confirm that client is in the list).

 What kernel is this? I reported it awhile back on, but I don't remember what version it was against.
