 The file /etc/request-key.conf will need to be modified so /sbin/request-key can
 direct the upcall.  The following line should be added:

 This will direct all id_resolver requests to the program /usr/sbin/nfs.idmap.
 The last parameter, 600, defines how many seconds into the future the key will
 expire.  This parameter is optional for /usr/sbin/nfs.idmap.  When the timeout
 is not specified, nfs.idmap will default to 600 seconds.
