      [PATCH] jffs2: fix symlink error handling · 2fb1e308

      The current calling conventions for ->follow_link() are already fairly
      complex.
      
      What we have is
      	1) you can return -error; then you must release nameidata yourself
      	   and ->put_link() will _not_ be called.
      	2) you can do nd_set_link(nd, ERR_PTR(-error)) and return 0
      	3) you can do nd_set_link(nd, path) and return 0
      	4) you can return 0 (after having moved nameidata yourself)
      
      jffs2 follow_link() is broken - it has an exit where it returns
      -EIO and leaks nameidata.
