The nfsservctl system call is not define in the system call table. I
manually inserted it to arch/i386/entry.S and this helped. This is
probably not the correct way but it points out the problem (the syscall
should only be defined when nfsd is compiled into the kernel; module
initialization does insert the call).

(The other problem with nfsd in stock 2.1.32 is that CONFIG_NFSD does not
get defined. Olaf's patch takes care of this.)
