SubjectRe: [PATCH] NLM program ID for user space NLM server

This doesn't make any sense to me at all.
You can certainly have the NFS client compiled and even running
without lockd running (if you mount with "-o nolock") and in that case
you are free you register your owner user-space NLM server (though I'm
not sure what good it would do you).

And if you want to mount an NFS filesystem without "-o nolock", then
you really need the kernel lockd running, or locking will not work.

Can you explain what you are trying to do - I'm curious.

Uhm... Do you mean

+#ifndef NLM_PROGRAM

?? Still not sure how that helps.
