SubjectRe: nfs-utils-1.0.5 is not backwards compatible with 2.4
According to Neil Brown:

The only really bad thing about the current situation is that the name
"NFSEXP_CROSSMNT" is poisoned by having had two historical
definitions. So it that name should be dropped, IMO, and replaced by
something textually different. "NFSEXP_XMOUNT", perhaps. Even
"NFSEXP_CROSSMNT2" would work. Just as long as code that said
"CROSSMNT" to mean "NOHIDE" wouldn't accidentally get CROSSMNT instead.
