Your patch creates a new per-export structure that is private to lockd.
It may be easier to put the grace period value into the export entry,
and check for that in nlm_fopen. It feels more natural than adding
a whole new shadow export table just for the benefit of lockd.
(Especially when you consider future extensions like being able
to search the list by dev_t or uuid or whatever)
