+nfs.idmap is designed to be called by request-key, and should not be run "by
hand". This program takes two arguments, a serialized key and a key
description. The serialized key is first converted into a key_serial_t, and
then passed as an argument to keyctl_instantiate (both are part of keyutils.h).

+The actual lookups are performed by functions found in nfsidmap.h. nfs.idmap
