[patch 3/4] fat: dont call notify_change

The FAT_IOCTL_SET_ATTRIBUTES ioctl() calls notify_change() to change
the file mode before changing the inode attributes.  Replace with
explicit calls to security_inode_setattr(), fat_setattr() and

This is equivalent to the original.  The reason it is needed, is that
later in the series we move the immutable check into notify_change().
That would break the FAT_IOCTL_SET_ATTRIBUTES ioctl, as it needs to
perform the mode change regardless of the immutability of the file.

[Fix error if fat is built as a module.  Thanks to OGAWA Hirofumi for
