  An improved NFS which comes with IRIX 5.3. It is described in detail
  in ftp://gatekeeper.dec.com/pub/standards/nfs/ and the
  Nov/Dev 1995 Pipeline. Its quirks are still being discovered by users;
  one prominent quirk is that it is not supported by the automounter.
  Another is that a bug causes ~/.Xauthority files on an NFS3 volume to
  be truncated; patch 216 fixes the bug. Another is that it interacts
  poorly with XFS; patch 547 fixes that and many other problems.
