I've had reported to me a couple of times that people are having difficulties 
running rpc.lockd in server-only configurations, as the /dev/nfslock device 
node is created only by the NFS client kernel code.  Do you know if this is 

(Fixing this is a little tricky, as while it's easy enough to make rpc.lockd 
ignore the node and not open it if it's not present, you also want rpc.lockd 
to suddenly notice it later if the NFS client code becomes loaded)
