For general information, I just ran a test with the NFS dependency
on file locking turned off, and with the NFS auto-enable of
CONFIG_LOCKD removed.

It got me about a 16K savings, and I was able to successfully boot
a target with an NFS-mounted root file system. I haven't run extensive
tests, so I don't know what apps might break in this configuration,
but at least in this test, it ran well enough to boot the machine.

Below is the patch I used, which is only provided for information.
This should NOT be applied - it consists of quick hacks to test this
configuration only (that is, to test NFS with CONFIG_FILE_LOCKING=n).

BTW - this is on a 2.6.23 kernel, so even the regular FILE_LOCKING
bits may be different from the current no-file-locking patch.
