efivarfs: return accurate error code in efivarfs_fill_super()
Joseph was hitting a failure case when mounting efivarfs which resulted in an incorrect error message, $ sudo mount -v /sys/firmware/efi/efivars mount: Cannot allocate memory triggered when efivarfs_valid_name() returned -EINVAL. Make sure we pass accurate return values up the stack if efivarfs_fill_super() fails to build inodes for EFI variables.
