    Description:


    This update for nfs-client includes the following changes:

    * Adds locking to avoid a race which could have caused
    high-available NFS exports to become unavailable when
    multiple cluster services failed over at the same time due
    to changes made to exportfs done by multiple processes in
    parallel overwriting each other.
    * Fixes issues with NFSv4 pseudo root management which
    was interfering with using different types of host
    identifiers (e.g. netgroup vs IP address) on different
    exports.
    * Removes a duplicate MOUNTD_PORT variable from
    sysconfig/nfs.
