Okay, this is relatively impressive, extracting what is normally a
piece of the kernel into a userland process - two pieces, in fact, the
NFS server and the underlying networking stack.
But...why? I had an NFS daemon that ran in userland as an ordinary
userland process, no "unholy cocktails" or "virtual kernels" or even
hacked-up librpcsvc needed, decades ago. I can't have been the only
one. Is this just an exercise in recreating a kernel code environment
in userspace, or is there something else I'm missing?
