Bug#657078: The new NFS idmapper

The old in-kernel idmapper seems to be effectively deprecated.  To use
the new idmapper, it looks we will require that:

1. keyutils supports a configuration directory (/etc/request-key.d)
2. nfs-common installs the necessary fragment in that directory and
depends on the appropriate version of keyutils (recommends would be
better but otherwise upgrades may break).

Also, since NFSv4 really seems to require idmap, it looks like
mounting /usr using NFSv4 won't work until:
3. nfs-common installs nfsidmap and rpc.idmapd in /sbin

Does this make sense to you?
