When an NFSv4 client performs a mount operation, it first mounts the
NFSv4 root and then does path walk to the exported path and performs a
submount on that, cloning the security mount options from the root's
superblock to the submount's superblock in the process.

Unless the NFS server has an explicit fsid=0 export with the
"security_label" option, the NFSv4 root superblock will not have
SBLABEL_MNT set, and neither will the submount superblock after cloning
the security mount options.  As a result, setxattr's of security labels
over NFSv4.2 will fail.

Allowing the NFSv4 client to override the SECURITY_LSM_NATIVE_LABELS
flag on an initialized superblock will ensure that SBLABEL_MNT is set
when the client traverses from an exported path without the
"security_label" option to one with the "security_label" option.
