Since commit de766e570413 ("nfsd: give out fewer session slots as
limit approaches") nfsd4_get_drc_mem() ensures 'avail' is always at
least 'slotsize', so the return value 'num' is always at least 1.

This means that:
1/ nfsd_drc_mem_used could exceed nfsd_drc_max_mem, which becomes
  a problem when we later perform an unsigned subtraction of
  the larger from the smaller to calculate 'total_avail'.
2/ Check the return value of nfsd4_get_drc_mem() against
  zero is pointless - the error code (which isn't actually correct
  according to RFC-5661) is never returned.

So avoid the integer overflow, and discard the check.
