SubjectREPOST patch 38/38: switches in fs/Config.in, fs/Config.help

This patch defines new switches in fs/Config.in -
CONFIG_NFS_V4: enables nfsv4 client
CONFIG_NFSD_V4: enables nfsv4 server
CONFIG_SUNRPC_GSSD_CLNT: enables in-kernel client for GSSD

[Background: GSSD is a service which runs in userspace, whose
purpose in life (for now) is to provide translation between
strings of the form user@realm, which are used in the NFSv4
protocol, and numerical uid/gid's, which the kernel can
understand. The kernel communicates with GSSD through
loopback RPC calls.]
