From: Lai Siyao <lai.siyao at whamcloud.com>

lmv_intent_lookup() will replace fid1 with stripe FID, but if striped
directory is mounted as subdirectory mount, it should be handled
differently. Because fid2 is directory master object, if stripe is
located on different MDT as master object, it will be treated as
remote object by server, thus server won't reply LOOKUP lock back,
therefore each file access needs to lookup "/".

And remote directory (either plain or striped) shouldn't be used for
subdirectory mount, because remote object can't get LOOKUP lock.
Add an option "mdt_enable_remote_subdir_mount" (1 by default for
backward compatibility), mdt_get_root() will return -EREMOTE if
user specified subdir is a remote directory and this option is
