is there a a way to clear the dentry and inode cache via proc interface ?

Sometimes all the clients of our groups have problems with stale nfs file
handles (and currently also UNFSD/ClusterNFS problems, though this will
finish soon), and we (the admins) think that this could be solved by clearing
the cache -- please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks in advance,
