I cannot reproduce it with knfsd-980915. BTW, there is also a patch
from knfsd-980914 to knfsd-980915 on ftp.yggdrasil.com:
There may be still bugs. Please let me know. I will fix them.
This is the Linux kernel NFS daemon. It is based on linux-nfs 0.4.22.
It is tested on Linux/alpha and Linux/x86 running glibc 2.0.7.
Changes from knfsd-980910:
1. nfsd-2.1.121-3.patch from G. Allen Morris III (email@example.com).
2. A new flag, -r, for exportfs.
3. Don't put an entry in xtab if kernel rejects it.
4. Use the official hostname when checking if 2 hostnames are the same.
5. Allow submounts.

You have to apply the patch, linux-2.1.1xx.diff, to the Linux kernel
first. It fixes quite a few nfs bugs. That patch is against Linux
2.1.111. If your kernel is different, you have to apply it by hand.
nfsd-2.1.121-3.patch is another knfsd patch against linux 2.1.121 by
"G. Allen Morris III" (firstname.lastname@example.org). It works for me on x86 and alpha.
To compile, just do
Makefile will try to determine which C library you are using and compile
this package accordingly.
# make install
will install the knfsd binaries. You have to install a knfs start up
script by hand. There is a new rc.nfsd in etc. I use it for both the
user-space nfsd and the kernel nfsd.
The NFS lock is only tested with knfsd. If the NFS lock doesn't work
for you, please try knfsd first before reporting it.
