I think this is ultimately due to a bug on the server. The client had
previously found a directory dentry. It then later tried to do an atomic
open on a new (regular file) dentry. The attributes it got back had the
same filehandle as the previously found directory inode. It then tried
to put the filp because it failed the aops tests for O_DIRECT opens, and
oopsed here because the ctx was still NULL.

Obviously the root cause here is a server issue, but we can take steps
to mitigate this on the client. When nfs_fhget is called, we always know
what type of inode it is. In the event that there's a broken or
malicious server on the other end of the wire, the client can end up
crashing because the wrong ops are set on it.

Have nfs_find_actor check that the inode type is correct after checking
the fileid. The fileid check should rarely ever match, so it should only
rarely ever get to this check. In the case where we have a broken
server, we may see two different inodes with the same i_ino, but the
client should be able to cope with them without crashing.

This should fix the oops reported here:
