vfs: vfs_tmpfile: ensure O_EXCL flag is enforced

If O_EXCL is *not* specified, then linkat() can be
used to link the temporary file into the filesystem.
If O_EXCL is specified then linkat() should fail (-1).

After commit 863f144f12ad ("vfs: open inside ->tmpfile()")
the O_EXCL flag is no longer honored by the vfs layer for
tmpfile, which means the file can be linked even if O_EXCL
flag is specified, which is a change in behaviour for

The open flags was previously passed as a parameter, so it
was uneffected by the changes to file->f_flags caused by
finish_open(). This patch fixes the issue by storing
file->f_flags in a local variable so the O_EXCL test
logic is restored.

This regression was detected by Android CTS Bionic fcntl()
tests running on android-mainline [1].
