    libafs: vldb cache timeout option (-volume-ttl)
    The unix cache manager caches VLDB information for read-only volumes as
    long as a volume callback is held for a read-only volume.  The volume
    callback may be held as long as files in the read-only volume are being
    accessed.  The cache manager caches VLDB information for read/write
    volumes as long as volume level errors (such as VMOVED) are not returned
    by a fileserver while accessing files within the volume.
    Add a new option to set the maximum amount of time VLDB information will
    be cached, even if a callback is still held for a read-only volume, or
    no volume errors have been encounted while accessing files in read/write
    This avoids situations where the vldb information is cached indefinitely
    for read-only and read/write volumes.  Instead, the VL servers will be
    periodically probed for volume information.
