Title: Deprecate bind-mount configuration with NFSv4 export
Requested by: Neil Brown (neilbrown)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org
When NFSv4 was introduced it was not possible to export filesystems to
NFSv4 the same way as for NFSv3. The "bind=" syntax was added to
/etc/exports to help bridge the gaps.
With current kernel and nfs-utils this is no longer an issue. By
default any filesystem that is exported is exported equally to NFSv2,
v3, and v4. So we should deprecate the "bind=" syntax and eventually
1) yasts nfs-server module should remove knowledge of "Bindmount
targets". The "bind=..." option should just be treated like any other
2) yasts nfs-server module should not encourage the "fsid=0" export
option. Like "bind=" it must still be permitted, but it should be
considered and exception rather than normal.
3) Yasts nfs-server help screens should remove mention of "bind=" and
4) Any documentation that mentioned nfs export, such as
should be changed to remove mention of bind= and fsid=, and should not
make any distinciton between NFSv4 and NFSv3.
Business case (Partner benefit):
: Simplifies administration, reduces possible confusion,
remove unnecessary difference between SUSE and other distros.

+ Michal, this rather seems to be a low-hanging fruit. Please, proceed.
