    sys/nfsclient        nfs_diskless.c 
  Switch the default NFS mount mode from UDP to TCP.  UDP mounts are a
  historical relic, and are no longer appropriate for either LAN or WAN
  mounting.  At modern (gigabit and 10 gigabit) LAN speeds packet loss
  from socket buffer fill events is common, and sequence numbers wrap
  quickly enough that data corruption is possible.  TCP solves both of
  these problems without imposing significant overhead.
