Subject: [PATCH 7/8] fs/9p: One function call less in v9fs_vfs_symlink_dotl()
 after error detection

From: Markus Elfring <elfring@...rs.sourceforge.net>
Date: Sun, 28 Dec 2014 13:00:54 +0100

The p9_client_clunk() function was called in two cases by the
v9fs_vfs_symlink_dotl() 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.

* Let us delete also an unnecessary variable assignment there.
