[Bug 817651] Kernel 3.7 and newer breaks rpc.gssd -n and thus update of nfs-client package for openSUSE 12.3 needed

Test results following installation of kernel in comment 16

Yes that kernel works, although I still need the "-n" flag, which means that
the nfs client utilities still need a patch which adds the possibility of
specifying GSSD_OPTIONS in /etc/sysconfig/nfs

I ran a few tests (8 in total) of different combinations of issues the mount
statement and rpc.gssd flags while having (or not having) kerberos credentials
for user and/or root. One of the things that puzzles me:
- given a valid user mountable entry in /etc/fstab/
- why can't I mount that entry as user without a valid kerberos ticket for
root? I can browse as a user even when the root credentials are destroyed (and
thus root can no longer browse), then why do I need it for mounting as user?
For some reason it only considers '/tmp/krb5cc_0' when I mount as user, when it
should also be looking at '/tmp/krb5cc_1000' since it was user uid=1000 that
issued the mount command. (Test 8)
- I can mount as user when root has a ticket (and it will say
'/tmp/krb5cc_1000' is valid). (Test 7)
