 Yep.  My minimalist kernel is obviously not including something else 
 that is required for nfsserver.  I simply don't know what is missing.
 So, to summarize:
        Full GENERIC monolithic kernel, with everything built-in, works
        My stripped-down, minimalist kernel, with almost everything
        removed, does not work,
        - when nfsserver module is manually loaded by /etc/boot.cfg
        - when module is manually loaded via modload
        - when module is allowed to autoload
        The same stripped-down kernel _still_ fails to work, even when
        'filesystem nfs' and 'options NFSSERVER' are added.
 Note that everything "used to work" just fine on 6.99.17.  It has only 
 broken since I updated to 6.99.23
