Amazon EFS provides an NFSv4.1 filesystem which appears to use
(close to) full length (128 byte) file handles.
This causes the handle reported by name_to_handle_at() to exceed
MAX_HANDLE_SZ, resulting in
  EOVERFLOW if 128 bytes were requested, or
  EINVAL if the size reported by the previous call was requested.

To fix this, increase MAX_HANDLE_SIZE a little, and add a BUILD_BUG
so that this sort of inconsistent error reporting won't happen again.
