[PATCH] NFS: supress warnings about NFS4ERR_OLD_STATEID innfs4_handle_exception

I recently posted this patch to the nfs mailing list, but got no comment.
Reposting with an actual "[PATCH]" subject...

In certain situations, a NFSv4 client can end up with a set of racing calls
that cause the server to return a NFS4ERR_OLD_STATEID error. When this occurs,
the only real recourse that the client has is to retry the call. In the
current code, when this occurs, it triggers a useless printk (in

nfs4_map_errors could not handle NFSv4 error 10024

Trond recently mentioned that we really don't need to worry users with that
info. The following patch is based on a suggestion by Frank Filz and supresses
this error. Changing the return code here to 0 should be safe since all callers
of nfs4_handle_exception are expected to retry the call in this situation
