NFS: Fix security flavor negotiation with legacy binary mounts

Commit 4580a92d44 "NFS: Use server-recommended security flavor by
default (NFSv3)" introduced a behavior regression for NFS mounts
done via a legacy binary mount(2) call.

Ensure that a default security flavor is specified for legacy binary
mount requests, since they do not invoke nfs_select_flavor() in the
kernel.

Busybox uses klibc's nfsmount command, which performs NFS mounts
using the legacy binary mount data format.  /sbin/mount.nfs is not
affected by this regression.
