Hi,

It turns out that the "vers" (or more specifically, "nfsvers") option
was mandatory to resolve this error.  What "mount.nfs" from
nfs-utils seems to do is start with "4.2", then retry upon errors lesser
versions.

The attached patch adds the required "nfsvers=4.2" option by default, or
honors a user specified one.  No retry is done.  Note that it currently
uses file system options represented as an alist, but this is likely to
change as the code review on "allow booting from a Btrfs subvolume"
progresses (the current patch is based atop of
<https://bugs.gnu.org/37305>).

Subject: [PATCH] build: file-systems: Specify a "nfsvers" option by default
 for NFS.

Without it, the mount system call fails with an ECONNREFUSED (Connection
refused) error.

* gnu/build/file-systems.scm (nfs-source->ip-address): Add procedure, with
code moved from...
(mount-file-system): ...the inner `mount-nfs' procedure, now removed.  The NFS
specific required options default values are now computed and added to the
regular options.  Honor any user given "addr", "nfsvers" or "vers" option."
Remove the call to `mount-nfs', no longer needed.

The mount-file-system call used in our init RAM disk (see: (gnu build
file-systems)) doesn't produce the correct system call as can be
demontstrated by the following C program:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#include <errno.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <sys/mount.h>

/* int mount(const char *source, const char *target, */
/* 	  const char *filesystemtype, unsigned long mountflags, */
/* 	  const void *data); */

int main() {
  //char *src = "192.168.51.34:/mnt/scratch/yocto-sstate";
  char *src = "192.168.51.34:/mnt/scratch/yocto-sstate";
  char *target = "/mnt/scratch/yocto-sstate";
  char *type = "nfs";
  unsigned long mountflags = 0;
  char *data = "addr=192.168.51.34";  //file system specific options

  int ret = 0;
  ret = mount(src, target, type, mountflags, data);

  if (ret == -1); {
    int errsv = errno;
    printf("mount() failed with error: %s\n", strerror(errsv));
  }
}

--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Running the program with strace, we can see that it failed with a
connection refused error:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
/* mount("192.168.51.34:/mnt/scratch/yocto-sstate", "/mnt/scratch/yocto-sstate", "nfs", 0, "addr=192.168.51.34") = -1 ECONNREFUSED (Connection refused) */
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---


When having nfs-utils installed and tracing mount.nfs with:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
strace -f -s320 mount j1-slave1.sfl.team:/mnt/scratch/yocto-dldir /mnt/scratch/yocto-dldir -t nfs
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

We can see that the working invocation reads as:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
mount("j1-slave1.sfl.team:/mnt/scratch/yocto-dldir", "/mnt/scratch/yocto-dldir", "nfs", 0, "vers=4.2,addr=192.168.51.34,clientaddr=192.168.49.249")
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
