SubjectRe: [PATCH] nfsd: check client tracker initialization result

Before, I think that we the nfsd4_client_* functions just became no-ops
in this case. With the result that no client records get written, and
so clients are unable to reclaim on the next boot.

Which is annoying, but possibly not as annoying as your server
completely refusing to start.

It's arguably more helpful in the long run to fail immediately when we
recognize reboot recovery isn't going to work. But in practice this may
mean people that never knew they had a problem suddenly have servers
that don't start at all.

So I'm inclined to be more forgiving and leave this as it is. But maybe
something like a warning printk would be appropriate.
