/*
 * These are the commands understood by nfsctl().

#define NFSCTL_SVC          0    /* This is a server process. */
#define NFSCTL_ADDCLIENT    1    /* Add an NFS client. */
#define NFSCTL_DELCLIENT    2    /* Remove an NFS client. */
#define NFSCTL_EXPORT       3    /* export a file system. */
#define NFSCTL_UNEXPORT     4    /* unexport a file system. */
#define NFSCTL_UGIDUPDATE   5    /* update a client's UID/GID map. */
#define NFSCTL_GETFH        6    /* get an fh (used by mountd) */

struct nfsctl_arg {
    int                       ca_version;     /* safeguard */
    union {
        struct nfsctl_svc     u_svc;
        struct nfsctl_client  u_client;
        struct nfsctl_export  u_export;

    } u;
}
