This is a very awkward API.  Dropping locks should support uuid or
dev_t based exports aswell.  Also it would be nice if you we had
a more general push api for changes to filesystem state, that works
on a similar basis as getting information from /etc/exports.


And please inline your patches into the mail I send, attaching them
makes it really hard to quote it in mail replies or even to simply read
it.
