New Revision: 209005

  MFC 208603:
  More gracefully handle stale file handles and attributes when opening a
  file via NFS.  Specifically, to satisfy close-to-open-consistency, the NFS
  client always performs at least one RPC on a file during an open(2) to see
  if the file has changed.  Normally this RPC is an ACCESS or GETATTR RPC
  that is forced by flushing a file's attribute cache during nfs_open() and
  then requesting new attributes.  However, if the file is noticed to be
  stale during nfs_open(), the only recourse is to fail the open(2) call
  with ESTALE.  On the other hand, if the ACCESS or GETATTR RPC is sent
  during nfs_lookup(), then the NFS client can fall back to a LOOKUP RPC to
  obtain the new file handle in the case that a file has been replaced.
  This change causes the NFS client to flush the attribute cache during
  nfs_lookup() when validating a name cache hit if the attributes fetched
  during nfs_lookup() can be reused in nfs_open().  This allows the client
  to open a replaced file via the new file handle the first time that it
  notices a replaced file rather than failing with ESTALE in some cases.
