Description

The idea is that multiple concurrently running nfsd instances should be able to run (on different ports or IPv4/IPv6 addresses).
The main need is for a NFS testsuite to allow that scripts can create, test and destroy an nfsd instance without colliding with an already running instance (which may be needed for other purposes).
Beyond that it may be nice to have such an option because it would allow customers to run nfsd instances with different flags/options/configurations.

Implementation notes:
- Need to hunt-down all global and function-static variables and put them into a per-nfsd instance context structure
- We need extra (command line) options to specificy alternative versions of the configuration files

I think this may have useful implications for use within non-global zones as well.
