Maybe a silly question but what about using "exportfs -r" for this?

/me prays we won't go back to our *old* export failover proposal (about two years ago) :) ...

Anyway, re-export is part of the required steps that take-over server needs to do. It, however, doesn't handle lockd grace period so we will have the possibility that other client will steal the locks away. That's why Bruce and I are working on the second "resume" patch at this moment.
