So the real question is what use does this bring? TCP is useful
because it can enable support for modern features like UEFI HTTP boot.
What is the use of NFSc1? The Linux kernel is removing support for
NFSv2 and according to wikipedia v1 was only ever used internally to
Sun so I'm not sure what the wider use of this functionality would be?
