afs: Fix afs_do_lookup() to call correct fetch-status op variant
Fix afs_do_lookup()'s fallback case for when FS.InlineBulkStatus isn't supported by the server. In the fallback, it calls FS.FetchStatus for the specific vnode it's meant to be looking up. Commit b6489a49f7b7 broke this by renaming one of the two identically-named afs_fetch_status_operation descriptors to something else so that one of them could be made non-static. The site that used the renamed one, however, wasn't renamed and didn't produce any warning because the other was declared in a header. Fix this by making afs_do_lookup() use the renamed variant. Note that there are two variants of the success method because one is called from ->lookup() where we may or may not have an inode, but can't call iget until after we've talked to the server - whereas the other is called from within iget where we have an inode, but it may or may not be initialised. The latter variant expects there to be an inode, but because it's being called from there former case, there might not be - resulting in an oops like the following: BUG: kernel NULL pointer dereference, address: 00000000000000b0 ...
