Subject: [PATCH 2/8] fs/9p: One function call less in v9fs_create() after
 error detection

From: Markus Elfring <elfring@...rs.sourceforge.net>
Date: Sun, 28 Dec 2014 08:28:51 +0100

The p9_client_clunk() function was called in two cases by the v9fs_create()
function during error handling even if the passed variable "fid"
contained a null pointer. This implementation detail could be improved
by the introduction of another jump label.
