NFSv4/v4.1: Verify the client owner id during trunking detection
While we normally expect the NFSv4 client to always send the same client owner to all servers, there are a couple of situations where that is not the case: 1) In NFSv4.0, switching between use of '-omigration' and not will cause the kernel to switch between using the non-uniform and uniform client strings. 2) In NFSv4.1, or NFSv4.0 when using uniform client strings, if the uniquifier string is suddenly changed. This patch will catch those situations by checking the client owner id in the trunking detection code, and will do the right thing if it notices that the strings differ.
