Port nested transaction allow from newer ctdb.

     still available, but no transaction recovery area is used and no
     fsync/msync calls are made.
 
-  - if TDB_NO_NESTING is passed to flags in tdb open then transaction
-    nesting is disabled. tdb_transaction_start() will then implicitely
-    cancel any pending transactions and always start a new transaction
-    context instead of nesting.
+  - if TDB_ALLOW_NESTING is passed to flags in tdb open, or added using
+    tdb_add_flags() transaction is enabled.
+    The default is that transaction nesting is not allowed and an attempt
+    to create a nested transaction will fail with TDB_ERR_NESTING.
 
+    Beware. when transactions are nested a transaction successfully
+    completed with tdb_transaction_commit() can be silently unrolled later.
