Subject: [PATCH 8/8] fs/9p: Less function calls in v9fs_vfs_mknod_dotl() after
 error detection

From: Markus Elfring <elfring@...rs.sourceforge.net>
Date: Sun, 28 Dec 2014 13:36:28 +0100

The p9_client_clunk() function was called in four cases by the
v9fs_vfs_mknod_dotl() function during error handling even if the passed
variable "fid" contained a null pointer. The v9fs_put_acl() function could
also be unnecessarily called with null pointers.

* This implementation detail could be improved by the introduction of
  two jump labels.

* Let us delete also two unnecessary variable assignments there.
