So how should the client behave, when a screwed up server allows it to
mount but starts returning illegal values for setclientid? The only
thing I can see we could do is to tell the user EINSANESERVER...

Now, we _should_ fix the wretched NFS server so that it doesn't do NFSv4
mounts when there is no configured root partition. We _should_ also fix
the damned thing so that it doesn't return illegal values.
