Thanks for the work around info, But that's not the point of this
bug report. In case you missed the meaning: there should not be any
nfs anything running on a clean install when the sysinstall
questions to enable nfs are answered as no. This is not something
that has ever been part of past stable releases so it must be turned
on in the kernel by mistake. The release built team must build a
true kernel.generic module which has kernel debugging and nfs kernel
options turned off. Creating a stable 5.3 release is my
understanding of the goal of the 5.3 beta weekly build series.
Reports of these kinds of bugs get a high severity so they get fixed
by next weeks build so why would you change this PR's Severity? If
anything you should have directed this PR to the leader of the
release build team so they can address this bug by next Fridays
