[PATCH v2 02/11] NFSv4.1: work around -Wmaybe-uninitialized warning

A bugfix introduced a harmless gcc warning in nfs4_slot_seqid_in_use
if we enable -Wmaybe-uninitialized again:

fs/nfs/nfs4session.c:203:54: error: 'cur_seq' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]

gcc is not smart enough to conclude that the IS_ERR/PTR_ERR pair
results in a nonzero return value here. Using PTR_ERR_OR_ZERO()
instead makes this clear to the compiler.

Fixes: e09c978aae5b ("NFSv4.1: Fix Oopsable condition in server callback races")
Signed-off-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd at arndb.de>
First submitted on Aug 31, but ended up not getting applied then
as the warning was disabled in v4.8-rc

Anna Schumaker said at the kernel summit that she had applied
it and would send it for 4.9, but as of 2016-11-09 it has not
made it into linux-next.
