423: nfs.ko fixed

# modprobe nfs
FATAL: Error inserting nfs (/lib/modules/ Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter

If you run 'modinfo nfs' you will see that it has two dependencies 'sunrpc.ko' and 'lockd.ko' -- if you then try 'modinfo' on those you will find they are missing.

The build script in Woof takes out some "exotic" modules that I didn't think would be needed, including those two. Fixed.

Thanks so much for this, I would really appreciate it if you continue to make NFS available in upcoming betas and alphas.
