Proposed patch.

If a machine is both a NFS server and a client with nfs shares mounted. The command
service netfs stop
will unmount these nfs shares correctly. 

However it also unmounts /proc/fs/nfsd which is required by the nfs server on the machine. This prevents other clients from mounting nfs shares from this server.


1) create nfs share and start nfs service.
2) mount nfs share
3) service netfs stop
This will unmount the nfs service. It also unmounts /proc/fs/nfsd which in turn prevents others from mounting from the servers nfs servers.
