        nfsroot uses bogus protocol version when it asks portmapper on
server for mountd port. Fix is obvious:

Notice that for NFSv3 both nfsd and mountd are using version 3, so it both
nfsd_ver == mountd_ver. However, for NFSv2 we end up asking for mountd
version 2, which doesn't exist - mountd version for NFSv2 was 1.

Looks like this typo got into the tree in 2.3.99-4-pre3 when NFSv3 had
been merged into the tree - until then we had (correctly) asked for
version 1. Corresponding code in 2.2 is using mountd_ver, so it's also
