Looking at a few GENERIC config files in a (rather old) source tree I
happen to have handy, I find four options beginning with N, none of
which strike me as likely to be mistaken for counts a la NATM:
NFSSERVER, NFSCLIENT, NULLFS, NFS_BOOT_RWSIZE. I think reserving all
options beginning with N is..excessive.
