That was used to indicate nfsv4 early in development, possibly to make sure
it didn't get used by default, but it was quickly realised that having a
separate filesystem type was confusing.

So while "nfs4" does still work an selected vers=4, it is deprecated.  You
should  always use "nfs" if possible.

BTW the nfs list is "linux-nfs@...r.kernel.org" - suitable for "noobs",
developers, and everyone in between.
