exporting 'nodev' filesystem over nfs

Hi All,
Has anyone been able to successfully export a 'nodev' filesystem (stackable fs, wrapfs for example) over nfs. From what I have learned, mounting a 'nodev' filesystem over nfs requires that it should be exported with fsid=xx option.
Here's my /etc/exports -
/mnt/wrapfs *(ro,no_subtree_check,fsid=1)

This works fine if /mnt/wrapfs were a normal directory or a mount point for a block_device. But if it's a stackable(nodev) fs mount point, trying to mount it remotely gives me a 'Permission denied' error.
Any insight will be greatly helpful.
