NFSD uses permission flags similar to the MAY_* flags,
with some overlap, and depends on the overlap matching.
This is currently a little fragile and hard to extend.

So add __MAY_UNUSED to identify the first unused flag,
and have NFSD use that flag and later flags for its
non-standard permissions.

v1 of this patch had an obvious bug which, of course, I couldn't see
until after posting.
__MAY_UNUSED had the same value as MAY_ACT_AS_OWNER - so it wasn't
unused!
