Subject: linux-3.14 nfsd regression

This commit from linux-3.14 breaks our NFS-root clients here:

- *p++ = htonl((u32) stat->mode);
+ *p++ = htonl((u32) (stat->mode & S_IALLUGO));

Reverting the one-liner above (on the server) fixes it for us,
as does reverting back to linux-3.13.8 on the server.

The NFS-root clients are on PowerPC (big-endian) architecture,
running linux-3.12.16. The NFS server is on an Intel PC running linux-3.14.

ACL is completely disabled on server and client,
and we're using NFSv2/v3.  No support for v4.

I instrumented the function to see what other bits were being cleared
by the (stat->mode & S_IALLUGO) masking.  The results are attached.
