Subject: [PATCH 00/14] Support for mounting NFSv4 servers over IPv6

Hi Steve-

Just for fun, here is the latest version of the patches that add support to
the text-based mount.nfs command for mounting NFSv4 servers over IPv6. This
patch set applies on top of the patches I posted here last week.

It was suggested that these be included in the next release of
nfs-utils, 1.1.3. Kernel support for these features (such as handling raw
IPv6 NFS server addresses properly when mounting) is planned for 2.6.27, so
inclusion of these patches would allow wider testing during .27's rc period.

Mounting NFSv2/v3 servers over IPv6 is more complex. It requires support
for a scalable rpcbind/portmap client built into nfs-utils, thus it is not
included in the present patch series. Anyone interested in looking at my
current prototype for this can check out:


It includes all the patches in this series and the patches I posted last
week for nfs-utils 1.1.3, client-side support for NFSv2/v3 mounting and
unmounting over IPv6, a prototype IPv6-enabled sm-notify command, and
updates to nfs(5) describing IPv6 support for the NFS client.

For what it's worth, I'll be on holiday next week, but I can field any
questions or comments before this Saturday, or when I return.
