Hi Stephen,
Thanks for your help in sorting this out. I have no idea how I missed those
few nfsservctl references but I clearly did and you and -next have proved
valuable yet again.

And really *everything* should spend a few days in linux-next before going
to Linus. We all know that but it sometimes seem hard to *do* that ....
until we have learnt the hard way a couple of times :-(
Thanks,
NeilBrown
