if we receive a compound such that:

	- the sessionid, slot, and sequence number in the SEQUENCE op
	  match a cached succesful reply with N ops.
	- the Nth operation of the compound is a PUTFH, PUTPUBFH,

then nfsd4_sequence will return 0 and set cstate->status to
nfserr_replay_cache.  The current filehandle will not be set.  This will
cause us to call check_nfsd_access with first argument NULL.

To nfsd4_compound it looks like we just succesfully executed an
operation that set a filehandle, but the current filehandle is not set.

Fix this by moving the nfserr_replay_cache earlier.  There was never any
reason to have it after the encode_op label, since the only case where
he hit that is when opdesc->op_func sets it.

Note that there are two ways we could hit this case:

	- a client is resending a previously sent a compound that ended
	  with one of the four PUTFH-like operations, or
	- a client is sending a *new* compound that (incorrectly) shares
	  sessionid, slot, and sequence number with a previously sent
	  compound, and the length of the previously sent compound
	  happens to match the position of a PUTFH-like operation in the
	  new compound.

The second is obviously incorrect client behavior.  The first is also
very strange--the only purpose of a PUTFH-like operation is to set the
current filehandle to be used by the following operation, so there's no
point in having it as the last in a compound.

So it's likely this requires a buggy or malicious client to reproduce.
