vfs: read file_handle only once in handle_to_path
commit 161f873b89136eb1e69477c847d5a5033239d9ba upstream. We used to read file_handle twice. Once to get the amount of extra bytes, and once to fetch the entire structure. This may be problematic since we do size verifications only after the first read, so if the number of extra bytes changes in userspace between the first and second calls, we'll have an incoherent view of file_handle. Instead, read the constant size once, and copy that over to the final structure without having to re-read it again.
