Fix incorrect error handling in afs_xattr_get_acl() where there appears to
be a redundant assignment before return, but in fact the return should be a
goto to the error handling at the end of the function.

Fixes: 260f082bae6d ("afs: Get an AFS3 ACL as an xattr")
Addresses-Coverity: ("Unused Value")

afs_xattr_get_yfs() tries to free yacl, which may hold an error value (say
if yfs_fs_fetch_opaque_acl() failed and returned an error).

Fix this by allocating yacl up front (since it's a fixed-length struct,
unlike afs_acl) and passing it in to the RPC function.  This also allows
the flags to be placed in the object rather than passing them through to
the RPC function.

Fixes: ae46578b963f ("afs: Get YFS ACLs and information through xattrs")

Sorry, you misunderstood me, my fault, i did not see that size is unsigned.
NTL i do not think size=0 is useful.

You get size from outside, and if i follow the flow correct
the first use of it is to check size>0.
perhaps you can check size at start and simply return.
Now if size==0 it will return dsize and give the impression
that buffer is used (it is not).

while you are there:
  flags |= YFS_ACL_WANT_ACL is always flags = YFS_ACL_WANT_ACL;
since flags is 0 at this point.
IMHO that sould be moved to the strcmp() section.

hope that helps,

Allow me to quote from the getxattr manpage:

       If size is specified as zero, these calls return the  current  size  of
       the  named extended attribute (and leave value unchanged).  This can be
       used to determine the size of the buffer that should be supplied  in  a
       subsequent  call.   [...]

Why?  It makes the strcmp() section more complicated and means I now either
have to cache flags in a variable or do the allocation of yacl first.

ok, sorry for the noise i did not know, for me that look unintended.

no need to cache, the idea was only to make the correlation between the name
and flags more obvious. (no need to hurry, i just noticed it)

if (strcmp(name, "acl") == 0) {
		which = 0;
                flags = YFS_ACL_WANT_ACL;
	}
else if (strcmp(name, "acl_inherited") == 0) {
		which = 1;
                flags = 0;
        }
else if (strcmp(name, "acl_num_cleaned") == 0) {
		which = 2;
                flags = 0;
	}
else if (strcmp(name, "vol_acl") == 0) {
		which = 3;
                flags = YFS_ACL_WANT_VOL_ACL;
}
....
