    afs: only reset access caches for the matching cell
    When an AFS user's tokens change (unlog, aklog) or expire,
    afs_ResetAccessCache() is called to reset all the access caches
    for that uid/PAG.
    However, a user/PAG may have tokens for multiple cells, and they
    may expire or be set/reset at different times.  Therefore, it is
    incorrect to assume that all access caches for a uid/PAG should
    be discarded when only one cell's tokens have changed.
    Modify afs_ResetAccessCache() to acccept a new argument 'cell',
    and only reset the access caches for a uid/PAG if the vcache
    resides in the specified cell.  If the caller really wants to
    reset all a user's access caches, specify cell=-1.
    For cache managers that are running with multiple PAGs and multiple
    cells, this should improve performance because 1) it avoids
    scanning access caches chains for vcaches that are not part of the
    current cell and 2) it avoids deleting access caches that may still
    good, thus preventing unnecessary FetchStatus calls.
