I had submitted some patches to 2.0.3x a couple months ago to allow
mounting an NFS server on a non-standard port, so I could add my own
filesystems using NFS, without interfering with the NFS server running
on the machine.

Alan rejected the patches because 2.0.3x is supposed to be the stable
kernel, and desire for the patch is probably low. Does 2.1.x have
this functionality in it? It would be very useful to me.
