I will be removing the old implementation of sunrpc which is currently
used with the NFS_LEGACYRPC kernel option. The new RPC code is easier
to maintain and supports modern features such as GSS-API
authentication. This will bring the number of RPC implementations in
the kernel back down to one (I'm ignoring the one that is part of the
NFS diskless support for now).
If you currently have NFS_LEGACYRPC in your kernel config, please
remove it now and if you have problems with the new code, please
report them here with as much detail as possible. My current plan is
to remove the NFS_LEGACYRPC option in one weeks time.
