This is distro specific... Other distros use the 
key ring based nfsidmap(5) command to do the id mapping.

Make note, with new kernels the default upcall is to the
nfsdimap command, if that fails then the rpc.idmapd daemon 
is tried. Meaning there are two upcalls for every id map
when rpc.idmapd is used. This was the reason for the switch.
