This code seems rather sloppy.  ofid could never be NULL at the point 
where it was tested.  There is a useless definition of ofid to NULL at the 
top of the function.  The error handling code could be rearranged with an 
extra error label so that p9_client_clunk is never called on fid when it 
it is not defined.  The the two assignments of fid to NULL could also be 
removed.  There is also a useless initialization of err to 0 at the 
beginning of the function.  And the first two calls to ERR_PTR are not 
needed, as the types of dfid and ofid are the same as the return type of 
the function.

This function is also unnecessarily complex.  The if above this one, that 
detects the error could just return PTR_ERR(fid);.  The rest of the 
function could call inc_nlink, v9fs_invalidate_inode_attr, and 
p9_client_clunk, and the returnvalue could be 0, removing the need for the 
err variable.

In the case where fid is set to NULL, it could just goto out directly, 
instead of calling p9_client_clunk, testing fid, coming back, and going to 
out anyway.
