svcrpc: fix failures to handle -1 uid's and gid's
As of f025adf191924e3a75ce80e130afcd2485b53bb8 "sunrpc: Properly decode kuids and kgids in RPC_AUTH_UNIX credentials" any rpc containing a -1 (0xffff) uid or gid would fail with a badcred error. Reported symptoms were xmbc clients failing on upgrade of the NFS server; examination of the network trace showed them sending -1 as the gid.
