SubjectFix ea-in-inode default ACL creation

here is another nastiness.

When a new inode is created, ext3_new_inode sets the EXT3_STATE_NEW
flag, which tells ext3_do_update_inode to zero out the inode before
filling in the inode's data. When a file is created in a directory with
a default acl, the new inode inherits the directory's default acl; this
generates attributes. The attributes are created before
ext3_do_update_inode is called to write out the inode. In case of
in-inode attributes, the new inode's attributes are written, and then
zeroed out again by ext3_do_update_inode. Bad thing.

Fix this by recognizing the EXT3_STATE_NEW case in
ext3_xattr_set_handle, and zeroing out the inode there already when
