Subjectkexportfs features
Date
From
  There are several improvements that I need to be made to kexportfs
IMHO.

1. The Clients should be stored in xtab as IP numbers.
Right now kmountd can hang for a long time on start-up
trying to resolve names. It calls auth_init before
it forks. I don't see any down side to this, but I
can be myopic at times.

2. If the kernel rejects an export kexportfs still makes an
entry in the xtab file. This would not be a problem except
that the order that kmountd will mount these after a reboot
is not clear.

3. The command `kexport -u bob:/usr' should unexport bob.site.net if
that is what `bob' resolves to. I think that fixing 1. above will
fix this problem as well. Since all lookups can be done by IP.
