This is the first time I had tried the knfsd, I had always been using the
standard user level program. I can comment about the speed, I hadn't make
tests before and after, but it works! I was useing the 2.1.122 on the
remote system and 2.1.121 on the host with "Universal NFS Server 2.2beta34"
and I couldn't even make it through a compile on the remote system before
it would have nfs problems, and I would kill rpc.nfsd, and restart and it
would have nfs access again. After switching to the knsfd, I haven't had
any of those problems, although I'm getting a lot of
"nfs_lookup_revalidate: //bin fh changed" on the remote system.

when I did a kexportfs -a it would not use my /etc/exports file, unless I
removed the squash_uids and squash_gids. My current /etc/exports is listed
below. With that file if I type kexportfs -a, I would get the error,
"exportfs: syntax error in exports file (line 71): bad uid/gid list"
Well there isn't 71 lines in the /etc/exports file. If I comment out the
one like that has squash_uids and squash_gids it does not complain.

# /etc/exports: the access control list for filesystems which may be exported
# to NFS clients. See exports(5).
