    volser: log message for cross-device link errors
    Add a log entry to the volume server to help diagnose those pesky
    'Invalid cross-link device' errors returned by vos, which occur when
    a clone volume is located in a different partition than the parent
    read-write volume, or when a read-only volume is on the incorrect
    partition on the server.
    With this change, a new log entry is added when the volume server
    fails to create a clone or a read-write volume because a volume with
    the target volume id already exists on a different partition.  For a
    clone volume, this would be a different partition than the
    read-write volume. For a read-only volume, this would be a different
    partition than indicated in the vldb.
    Volume foobar is on /vicepb, but foobar.backup is incorrectly on
    partition /vicepa.
    $ vos backup foobar

    The vldb indicates a read-only volume should be on /vicepa on a
    remote site, but the actual volume is on /vicepb.
