Description of problem:

I've seen a number of reports of multiple rpc.statds being started..

Description of problem:

    start-statd: don't run multiple rpc.statds on the one host.
    If rpc.statd is running but slow to respond, mount.nfs will
    run "start-statd" which might start a new statd.  This is not a good
    ideas as can result in lots of rpc.statds.
    So inf start-statd check the pid file and if rpc.statd seems to be
    running, exit with success.
    (also "cd /" before running rpc.statd, just in case).
