I've followed the messages about this problem, but am hoping that it can
be fixed in userland by changing the knfsd mount/export utilities. For
example, could the wildcarding be handled by generating the equivalent
file on the fly?

I'd really rather not make further changes to the knfsd kernel code if
possible.
