meta: also copy HasSequenceNumber msghdr flag when sending to secondary

a message that is forwarded verbatim will have the flag set correctly,
but an AckNotify message (sent when processing on the primary fails)
would not. this can cause the secondary mirror message state maps to
grow without bounds.

a common cause for missing acks along this path is creat() and mkdir(),
since both send a LookupIntent that does not return success. the
sequence number acked by that message would be sent to the secondary in
an AckNotify message without the HasSequenceNumber flag - and thus
ignoried, leaving the mirror state slot for that seq# populated.
