When a program searches for a keytab entry but does not find one with
the right kvno, it returns the same error as if the principal did not
appear in the keytab at all. I think this confuses users, and adds a
step to diagnosing many problems. Error codes are cheap, so I suggest
we add

KRB5_KT_KVNONOTFOUND, "Key table entry with correct kvno not found"

that can be returned by the keytab library. The error could would
explicitly mean that at least one matching principal entry was found
but with the wrong kvno. The text string could probably be better

This of course is a feature change, not a bug fix, and we're in
feature freeze for 1.0. Too bad, given the number of users having
this problem with the kadmind keytab.
