+	Add a new "syskrb5" mount option for Kerberized NFSv4.1/4.2 mounts.
+	Without this patch, a Kerberized NFSv4.1/4.2 mount must provide
+	a Kerberos credential for the client at mount time.
+	This patch uses a feature of NFSv4.1/4.2 called SP4_NONE, which
+	allows the state maintenance operations to be performed by any
