This is advance warning that we'll be garbage-collecting the UMich NFSv4
client (src/sys/nfs4client and supporting RPC code, daemons, and mount tool)
prior to 8.0 now that Rick Macklems NFSv234 client and server are in the base
tree. This removal will likely be in the next week, as the 8.0 feature freeze
is at the end of the month.
The new client and server provide significantly improved support for NFSv4,
and while they remain experimental, they should offer both more reliable, more
complete, and actively maintained NFSv4 support. Anyone using nfs4client
(probably not many) is encouraged to try out and provide feedback on the new
NFSv4 code as soon as possible.
