I really, really, wish there was an fstab option I could add to nfs
files that said: "Hey Mr. Mounter - when you go to mount this,
just background it immediately, don't wait."

That would make it much more convenient to have entries in fstab
for nfs mounts to systems which may or may not actually be up
at the time I'm booting.
