I'm right now on the road, but I can check the details next week. The  
reason to use this hit me first with openSUSE 11.1, when they use some  
speedup with kernel NFS. If they mount /proc/fs/nfsd then you need the  
filesystem id. If you comment out this line in the nfs daemons startup  
script, you don't need to set the file system id to survive a reboot.
