mount/fuse: unlink the inode on revalidate if entry not found
If an inode/dentry is linked via a client and removed via a separate client, the inode/dentry mapping in the initial client remains. A lookup of the removed name on the initial client typically returns ENOENT once the associated caches expire. If the initial client has multiple dentries linked to the same inode, however, lookups on the non-removed dentry create windows of time where lookups on the stale/removed name return successfully. This occurs because the stale mapping resolves to the still valid inode and tricks md-cache into returning valid lookup data. To correct this situation, unlink the stale inode mapping on a failed (ENOENT) revalidation lookup (i.e., when fuse has resolved the inode but a lookup returns ENOENT). Note that with this change, the state still occurs until an md-cache window has expired, allowed a lookup to pass through to the server and given the fuse translator an opportunity to clean up.
