SubjectWill NFSv4 be accepted?

Linus, I'm curious if the NFSv4 patches will be accepted in the near
future (ie, before 2.6).

I for one would REALLY like to see NFSv4 (actually, Kerberized NFSv4 is
what I'm after). I just finished setting up a Kerberized Solaris NFS
environment with home directories automounted from the clients with
strong user authentication.

Frankly, the stock (non-Kerberized) NFS security model blows.

The fact that any janitor with a laptop (or any client with a malicious
root user) can nuke all home directories from a standard NFS home
directory server bothers me greatly.
