kernel 2.6.4 and nfs lockd.udpport?

Hi all!

I'm running a 2.6.4 kernel with compiled in nfs support. I have to tie the used ports because there is a firewall to gro through. mountd, statd and rquotad are just fine, I can change ports after booting, no problem. But not for lockd (or nlockmgr), since AFAIK this must be done with boot parameters.

I read the docs and found that the parameters sould be lockd.udpport and lockd.tcpport=xxx - but this doesn't work. While booting I got errors that both are unknown boot options.

Where is my mistake?
