core: fix errno for non-existent GFID
When clients refer to a GFID which does not exist, the errno to be returned in ESTALE (and not ENOENT). Even though ENOENT might look "proper" most of the time, as the application eventually expects ENOENT even if a parent directory does not exist, not returning ESTALE results in resolvers (FUSE and GFAPI) to not retry resolution in uncached mode. This can result in spurious ENOENTs during concurrent path modification operations.
