Re: Limiting rpc.lockd to IPv4 only

Any objections or comments?

For what it may be worth, this is not what I'd naïvely expect -4 and -6
to mean.  What I'd expect is

-4      Use v4 only, error if unavailable.
-6      Use v6 only, error if unavailable.
neither Use both, silently dropping whatever's unavailable.
both    Use both, error if either unavailable.

Agree, but I was following existing prior art in the way that nfsd uses -4 and -6
