On which machine did you upgrade the kernel - the client or the server ?
Linux is an OK NFS client but as of yet it's still not a great server. The
new in-kernel NFSD may lead to improvements but that's still WIP AFAIK,
although quite far advanced. I would read the log messages as indicating a
problem with the server (though I don't know about 'request slots')

See above remarks - it would be well worthwhile upgrading the kernel on the
server, if you can do that.
