Default Bug#648155: Patch to make nfs4 return EKEYEXPIRED to user code

This patch (for 3.1-rc10, probably works for all versions that have this
problem) makes nfs4 return the EKEYEXPIRED to user level, which works
well with nfs4 mounted home directories on user systems.


The normal case will be that the workstation screen will be locked when
the ticket expires, the user will enter her password and a new ticket
will be granted. Any processes that try to access the home directory
while the ticket is expired will get EKEYEXPIRED and probably give up.
