[Linux-cluster] Ordering of NFS exports

I have a problem with my cluster that pops up now and then.

Sometimes the ordering of my NFS exports changes. This quickly becomes a 
problem, as some hosts need remote root access to file systems. When 
there is an earlier export matching the client that doesn't allow root 
access things start breaking here...

I would propose that the logic for exporting file systems should 
preserve ordering of exports for each file system. Perhaps by redoing 
all exports for a file system in correct order if any of the exports for 
that file system need to be renewed?
