There seem to be two things wrong. First, knfsd should not follow symlinks:
symlinks are followed on the client. Second, it is completely acceptable
if an individual export only exports a single file system (i.e. device).
This is what everybody else does, only on Linux, an export for the root
file system also exports all mounted file systems.
