nfsiods in 5.* and newer are completely kernel-based and are controlled
by three sysctls: vfs.nfs.iodmin, vfs.nfs.iodmax, and
vfs.nfs.iodmaxidle.  The kernel will automatically start up new nfsiods
as it needs them, up to 'iodmax'.  If an nfsiod had been idle for
'iodmaxidle' seconds, the kernel will kill it off, but will always
leave at least 'iodmin' processes running.

All /sbin/nfsiod does is set the iodmax sysctl (which defaults to 20);
it's not really needed anymore.
