If I've understood correctly, you want to lock once in start of function 
ntfs_save_wsl_perm and unlock at the end of it.
It takes care of locks for those 4 calls to ntfs_set_ea.

But there are still other calls to ntfs_set_ea, that aren't protected
in this case:
function ntfs_set_acl_ex (line 603 file fs/ntfs3/xattr.c)
err = ntfs_set_ea(inode, name, name_len, value, size, flags, locked);

This function called there:
- function ntfs_set_acl  (line 621 file fs/ntfs3/xattr.c)
return ntfs_set_acl_ex(mnt_userns, inode, acl, type);
- function ntfs_init_acl (line 701 file fs/ntfs3/xattr.c)
err = ntfs_set_acl_ex(mnt_userns, inode, default_acl,
- function ntfs_init_acl (line 712 file fs/ntfs3/xattr.c)
err = ntfs_set_acl_ex(mnt_userns, inode, acl,

So there are many entry points to ntfs_set_ea (and can be added more).
Of course we can let int locked remain for these situations,
but in my opinion it makes code a lot less readable
(that was the reason to start looking into locking).
I'm not sure, that winning some lock/unlocking
in one specific scenario is worth it.
