With the new file caching infrastructure in nfsd, we can end up holding
files open for an indefinite period of time, even when they are still
idle. This may prevent the kernel from handing out leases on the file,
which is something we don't want to block.

Fix this by running a SRCU notifier call chain whenever any lease
attempt is made. nfsd can then purge the nfsd_file cache of any entries
associated with that inode, and use the fput_global infrastructure to
make sure the final __fput is done.

Since SRCU is only conditionally compiled in, we must only define the
new chain if it's enabled, and users of the chain must ensure that
SRCU is enabled.
