LOCKD: fix races in nsm_client_get
Commit e9406db20fecbfcab646bad157b4cfdc7cadddfb (lockd: per-net NSM client creation and destruction helpers introduced) contains a nasty race on initialisation of the per-net NSM client because it doesn't check whether or not the client is set after grabbing the nsm_create_mutex.
