Maaybe TCP should be the default then ? In case no one finds the reason why NFS over UDP is slower on 2.6.x than 2.4.x. It seems there are

While it is reasonable to make TCP default it is important that if there
is a real problem with UDP NFS that it is sorted. Some of us have to
work with older machines and kernels on clients that don't support TCP NFS.
