SubjectKNFSD question + others
Hi !

I've got a question on knfsd. I don't know too much about Linux kernel
internals (maybe in the future :) so can you suggest a document/URL
which can explain why a kernel based NFS implementation gives better
performance than one running in user space. The other : how will knfsd
share CPU time ? I mean if there is a server which is mounted by many
clients through NFS, kernel will stay more and more time in kernel mode
beacuse of the kernel based NFS implementation. This will decrease
the usable CPU resources by user processes. But what can I do if (for
example) interactive performance is much important than NFS' on a busy
server ? Is there any document on new kernel features ? I'd like to get
closer with kernel hacking but I've got major problems like this one.

Thanx : Gábor Lénárt
