I'm not sure i have understand your means, is it like this?

# cat /etc/exports
/nfsroot *(fsid=0,insecure,no_root_squash,rw)

# mkdir -p /nfsroot/nfsroot
# touch /nfsroot/tstfile
# service nfs restart
# mount -t nfs /mnt

# ls /mnt <== Here, we access real /nfsroot/nfsroot, not /nfsroot,
so we can not find "tstfile", right?

Actually, when we use "-t nfs", nfs-utils try to mount NFSv4 first,
if you want use NFSv3, you should use "-t nfs -o vers=3" in the nfs-utils-1.2.2.

As i see, there's no way to disabe nlockmgr, it's start by lockd,
and lockd will be up when we start nfsd. It's always work until the
last nfsd thread stop.
