NFS: Add nfs4_unique_id boot parameter
An optional boot parameter is introduced to allow client administrators to specify a string that the Linux NFS client can insert into its nfs_client_id4 id string, to make it both more globally unique, and to ensure that it doesn't change even if the client's nodename changes. If this boot parameter is not specified, the client's nodename is used, as before. Client installation procedures can create a unique string (typically, a UUID) which remains unchanged during the lifetime of that client instance. This works just like creating a UUID for the label of the system's root and boot volumes.
