Since the previous patch in this patch-set uses i_pos as the inode
number, we can use it to find the directory entry of the inode and
subsequently rebuild the inode if the cache lookups fail.

Since this involves  accessing the FAT media,it is better to do this
only if the 'nfs' mount option is enabled.
