Yes but this breaks "Sorin"'s conspiracy to sneak into readhat the block
layout driver. Because it would be selected automatically if you set

Because for some perverted reason readhat wants pNFS-Files in, with
latest patches, but not the blocks or objects. I liked it that Blocks
tried to state: "pNFS is with blocks as well". Even Trond agreed that
it is logical this way.

You select CONFIG_NFS41 or not. objects and blocks are a part of that,
mandated by the protocol.

(I don't know that it was "Sorin"'s Idea, I meant the block guys)

I wish we can go back to the auto selection but fix the dependency
stuff. Surly it is possible.
