Subject[35/39] CacheFiles: Fix error handling in cachefiles_determine_cache_security()

2.6.33-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>
commit 7ac512aa8237c43331ffaf77a4fd8b8d684819ba upstream.

cachefiles_determine_cache_security() is expected to return with a
security override in place. However, if set_create_files_as() fails, we
fail to do this. In this case, we should just reinstate the security
override that was set by the caller.

Furthermore, if set_create_files_as() fails, we should dispose of the
new credentials we were in the process of creating.
