vfs: don't set FILE_CREATED before calling ->atomic_open()

If O_CREAT|O_EXCL are passed to open, then we know that either

 - the file is successfully created, or
 - the operation fails in some way.

So previously we set FILE_CREATED before calling ->atomic_open() so the
filesystem doesn't have to.  This, however, led to bugs in the
implementation that went unnoticed when the filesystem didn't check for
existence, yet returned success.  To prevent this kind of bug, require
filesystems to always explicitly set FILE_CREATED on O_CREAT|O_EXCL and
verify this in the VFS.

Also added a couple more verifications for the result of atomic_open():

 - Warn if filesystem set FILE_CREATED despite the lack of O_CREAT.
 - Warn if filesystem set FILE_CREATED but gave a negative dentry.
