[klibc] [patch] nfsmount fix rpc header length

nfsmount sends bad rpc header in portmap calls. The length in rpc header
should be only the length of  data without header (nfsmount sends the
length including 4 byte header). Portmap in Fedora 7 does not like this.
This change in sunrpc.c:rpc_header fixed it
see http://bugs.debian.org/428832
