    nfsd: more careful input validation in nfsctl write methods
    
    Neil Brown points out that we're checking buf[size-1] in a couple places
    without first checking whether size is zero.
    
    Actually, given the implementation of simple_transaction_get(), buf[-1]
    is zero, so in both of these cases the subsequent check of the value of
    buf[size-1] will catch this case.
    
    But it seems fragile to depend on that, so add explicit checks for this
    case.
