I don't see any reason that all of the channels would have to go to userspace. If a packet is to a kernel NFS client, it would end up in the kernel code, but without all the copies between the network and the VFS.
Of course, the kernel would have to keep a TCP implementation, but that's not surprising, since static binaries that use sockets should continue to work.
