+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #464149 +++

Description of problem:
Upon reboot (when nfs is still active) the /var/lib/nfs/rmtab is not emptied.
The result is that over multiple reboots the showmount -a command shows mounts that may not even be in existance anymore.

For example, we recently removed an ip range from our network, but those mounts were still being shown after a reboot.

This in my opinion is not correct.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Mount something over nfs using ip number a.b.c.d, then reboot the nfs server without unmounting. showmount -a after the reboot will still show a.b.c.d as a mount.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
a.b.c.d:/dir even when a.b.c.d never remounted /dir

Expected results:
no a.b.c.d:/dir in /var/lib.nfs/rmtab
