It happens right after booting.

I've since disabled the NFS server on that box, and just tried to
manually start it, and it gives me this:
# /usr/sbin/exportfs -r
bigred:/video/rec: Cannot allocate memory

That is the first and only export:

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

/video/rec bigred(rw,sync)

strace on exportfs shows this:nfsservctl(0x3, 0xbf875824, 0) =

After that, /proc/fs/nfs/export exists and gives the Oops, while
/proc/fs/nfsd/export doesn't exist.

I don't think however this box is particularly short on memory:

(this is right after booting, DVB drivers loaded and VDR running.)

Will try your patch tomorrow.
