Does any of this mean we should think about revamping our NFS support in mkinitcpio? I'm not really happy with stealing bits from the klibc tree, as its a real pain in the butt to maintain (and bump/bugfix).
The current NFS support in mkinitcpio was a shortcut, because I was too lazy to do it properly and it was completely compatible with the classic kernel NFS setup.
Doing it properly is not easy, and I never cared enough. It is certainly not done "the right way". It is simple compatible to the 1990s way of doing things.
