[rear-users] ReaR and NFS4

Hello Michael,

AFAIK we don't yet support NFSv4 because we don't deal with the extra
daemons that it needs (idmap ...)

So just now I would expect that it works only as much as you can get it to
work with just the kernel module.

However, adding the daemons should be not difficult. Please take a look
at usr/share/rear/verify/NETFS/default/05_start_required_daemons.sh to see
what already happens for NFSv3.

If you get it to work please be so kind as to provide us with a pull
request via GitHub.

If you need help along the way then the best would be to open an issue on
GitHub or ask here in the mailing list.

Kind Regards,
