[PATCH] NFS: Fix cache consistency races

If the data cache has been marked as potentially invalid by nfs_refresh_inode,
we should invalidate it rather than assume that changes are due to our own

Also ensure that we always start with a valid cache before declaring it
to be protected by a delegation.
