mqueue: fix kernel BUG caused by double free() on mq_open()
In case of aborting because we reach the maximum amount of memory which can be allocated to message queues per user (RLIMIT_MSGQUEUE), we would try to free the message area twice when bailing out: first by the error handling code itself, and then later when cleaning up the inode through delete_inode().
