 I'n suspecting that something isn't getting initialized correctly when 
 the module is loaded.  I've been trying to track it down, but no luck so 
 But I don't think this is an issue with the MODULAR infrastructure, but 
 rather an issue with specific implementation of nfsserver module.  It 
 "just works" in a monolithic kernel, but fails with loaded module in a 
 minimalist kernel.
 One thing I have not tried yet is to build a GENERIC-MINUS-NFS kernel 
 and see if the problem persists there.
