    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.
