[PATCH] namei fixes (4/19)

path.mnt in open_namei() set to mirror nd->mnt.

nd->mnt is set in 3 places in that function - path_lookup() in the beginning,
__follow_down() loop after do_last: and __do_follow_link() call after

We set path.mnt to nd->mnt after path_lookup() and __do_follow_link().  In
__follow_down() loop we use &path.mnt instead of &nd->mnt and set nd->mnt to
path.mnt immediately after that loop.

Obviously equivalent transformation.
