    SubjectRe: Bugs in knfsd -- Problem re-exporting an NFS share

    Well, not completely. There is now this option "nohide" on /etc/exports
    which does this. Another useful thing we use a lot here. With knfsd you
    still have to authorize (export) separately each local mount point (unfsd
    used to automatically authorize all the underlying tree), but with this
    option you can mount just once and go down into directories which are on
    different filesystems on the server. A very useful feature, specially
    while autofs is not able to do cascaded mounts. We use this for some
    sysadmin tasks on clients, which export their root to their server.

    I recognize the need for a robust NFS structure on Linux and understand
    that some restrictions on features might be needed for that. But all these
    features are quite nice and useful, so I hope ways are found to implement
    them in robust ways.
