cifs: fix a memleak in cifs_setattr_nounix()
Andrew Hendry reported a kmemleak warning in 2.6.37-rc1 while editing a text file with gedit over cifs. unreferenced object 0xffff88022ee08b40 (size 32): comm "gedit", pid 2524, jiffies 4300160388 (age 2633.655s) hex dump (first 32 bytes): 5c 2e 67 6f 75 74 70 75 74 73 74 72 65 61 6d 2d \.goutputstream- 35 42 41 53 4c 56 00 de 09 00 00 00 2c 26 78 ee 5BASLV......,&x. backtrace: [<ffffffff81504a4d>] kmemleak_alloc+0x2d/0x60 [<ffffffff81136e13>] __kmalloc+0xe3/0x1d0 [<ffffffffa0313db0>] build_path_from_dentry+0xf0/0x230 [cifs] [<ffffffffa031ae1e>] cifs_setattr+0x9e/0x770 [cifs] [<ffffffff8115fe90>] notify_change+0x170/0x2e0 [<ffffffff81145ceb>] sys_fchmod+0x10b/0x140 [<ffffffff8100c172>] system_call_fastpath+0x16/0x1b [<ffffffffffffffff>] 0xffffffffffffffff The commit 1025774c that removed inode_setattr() seems to have introduced this memleak by returning early without freeing 'full_path'.
