vfs: move permission checking into notify_change() for utimes(NULL)

commit f2b20f6ee842313a0d681dbbf7f87b70291a6a3b upstream.

This fixes a bug where the permission was not properly checked in
overlayfs.  The testcase is ltp/utimensat01.

It is also cleaner and safer to do the permission checking in the vfs
helper instead of the caller.

This patch introduces an additional ia_valid flag ATTR_TOUCH (since
touch(1) is the most obvious user of utimes(NULL)) that is passed into
notify_change whenever the conditions for this special permission checking
mode are met.
