NFS is more than one package (if you want to work reliable); you end up
with the lockd stuff, the portmap stuff (which may spread to other
packages due to portmap
not being very friendly with IP ports etc etc)....
if someone really really gets it to work well in the community OBS I'm
open to deal with the kernel config issue; that's the least of the worries.
But what I don't want is that we complicate the already complex bootflow
of the "non NFS" OS at all...
