[Lustre-devel] GSS cross-realm broken in lsvcgssd

lsvcgssd from the current HEAD refuses all remote-realm principals, the 
culprit is get_ids() in lustre/utils/gss/svcgssd_proc.c

In the previous revision (1.4):
   MDS accepts remote principals with mapping to local user.
   OSS accepts remote "lustre_root at SOMEREALM" principals.
   Any other remote principals are logged as unmapped and failed.

In the current revision (1.5, since Jan):
   MDS fails all remote principals.
   OSS fails all remote principals.
   Unmapped remote principals are logged, mapped are not.

The attached patch (against 1.5):
   Restores previous MDS behavior of accepting remote principals with 
mapping to local user.
   Modifies OSS behavior to accept remote "lustre_root at SOMEREALM" and 
"lustre_root/hostname at SOMEREALM" principals.
   Fixes logging errors in get_ids().

Notice of any problems with this patch, or other suggestions, are
