Can knfs do everything that nfsd does? I couldn't quickly locate any
info on knfs in linux/Documentation/.
In particular, features I like (and have (mis)used in the past) is
re-exporting imported NFS filesystems, and that mount points can be
traversed (i.e. export /usr, and /usr/local is also exported if that
happens to be a separate filesystem).
