Starting NFS kernel daemon fail

I hope you are using correct version of nfs-util which matches with
your kernel version. some debugging with /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server
will surely help to know where is it actually failing. It happened
with me once, that this script checked for kernel symbol to find if
module is loaded by grepping for something like 'init_nfsd' within
kernel symbols and signature of this symbol changed in recent kernels
so, it failed to detect NFS server module.
