NFS: Add options for finer control of the lookup cache



Add the flag NFS_MOUNT_LOOKUP_CACHE_NONEG to turn off the caching of
negative dentries. In reality what we do is to force
nfs_lookup_revalidate() to always discard negative dentries.

Add the flag NFS_MOUNT_LOOKUP_CACHE_NONE for enforcing stricter
revalidation of dentries. It forces the revalidate code to always do a
lookup instead of just checking the cached mtime of the parent directory.
