pNFS support in cinder/brick for NFS operations

Registered by Navneet on 2014-01-21

The NFS drivers in cinder/brick use NFS 3.0 by default on the client side for NFS communications. NFS4.1 or pNFS seems to be a better alternative considering performance and hence needs to be enabled as default option in brick for NFS related operations. The NFS clients will start by using NFS 4.1 for mouting exports, in case of any failures will fallback to older NFS version. We might need it in nova as well, its a matter of further analysis.
