Subject: [PATCH] fix typo in assignment of fs default overflow gid

fix typo in assignment of fs default overflow gid

The patch remains without practical effect since
both macros carry identical values.
Still, it might become a problem in the future
if (for whatever reason) the default overflow uid
and gid differ.
The DEFAULT_FS_OVERFLOWGID macro was previously unused.
