    Try 2.4 for some of those

    Someone is working a bit on this.

    In progress.

    Patches exist but they need a vm guru to verify their correctness before
    they can go in the main tree. In the mean time they are just sitting waiting

    You can do NFSv2 over TCP as well - NFS runs over RPC and RPC is specified
    for TCP, UDP and other transports.

    ISApnp can't solve all the problems

    Not resource arbitration and reassignment. Picking a suitable initial
    assignment maybe
