From: NeilBrown <neil@brown.name>

When an "nfsd.fh" request is received from the kernel, we map the
file-handle prefix to a path name and report that (as required) and then
also add "nfsd.export" information with export flags applicable to that

This is not necessary and was added as a perceived optimisation.
When updating data already in the kernel, it is unlikely to help as the
kernel can be expected to ask for both details at much the same time.
With NFSv3, new information is normally added by a MOUNT rpc request, so
this is irrelevant.
With NFSv4, the kernel requests the "nfsd.export" information when
walking down from ROOT, *before* requesting the nfsd.fh information, so
this "optimisation" causes unnecessary work.

A future patch will add logging of authentication requests, and this
double-handling would result in extra unnecessary log messages.

As this "optimisation" appears to have no practical value and some
(small) cost, let's remove it.
