fs/posix_acl.c: make posix_acl_create() safer and cleaner

If posix_acl_create() returns an error code then "*acl" and "*default_acl"
can be uninitialized or point to freed memory.  This is a dangerous thing
to do.  For example, it causes a problem in ocfs2_reflink():

	fs/ocfs2/refcounttree.c:4327 ocfs2_reflink()
	error: potentially using uninitialized 'default_acl'.

I've re-written this so we set the pointers to NULL at the start.  I've
added a temporary "clone" variable to hold the value of "*acl" until end.
Setting them to NULL means means we don't need the "no_acl" label.  We may
as well remove the "apply_umask" stuff forward and remove that label as
well.
