SUNRPC handle EKEYEXPIRED in call_refreshresult
Currently, when an RPCSEC_GSS context has expired or is non-existent and the users (Kerberos) credentials have also expired or are non-existent, the client receives the -EKEYEXPIRED error and tries to refresh the context forever. If an application is performing I/O, or other work against the share, the application hangs, and the user is not prompted to refresh/establish their credentials. This can result in a denial of service for other users. Users are expected to manage their Kerberos credential lifetimes to mitigate this issue. Move the -EKEYEXPIRED handling into the RPC layer. Try tk_cred_retry number of times to refresh the gss_context, and then return -EACCES to the application.
