The NFS kernel server is currently the recommended NFS server for use
with Linux, featuring features such as NFSv3 and NFSv4, Kerberos
support via GSS, and much more. It is also significantly faster and
usually more reliable than the user-space NFS servers (from the
unfs3 and nfs-user-server packages). However, it is more difficult to
debug than the user-space servers, and has a slightly different
feature set.
This package contains the user-space support needed to use the
NFS kernel server. Most administrators wishing to set up an NFS server
would want to install this package.

guarantee that the change is visible on the client.  For that, we need
to flush the inode/dentry cache instead.
