[PATCH] debugfs: keep the old valid mode value when no explicity specify it

From: Chen LinX
Date: Thu Aug 28 2014 - 06:07:05 EST

From: "Chen, LinX" <linx.z.chen@xxxxxxxxx>

When mount debugfs with no mode specifed after it's mounted, the mount
point mode will change to default mode(0700) even the mount operation was fail,
this will cause some issues like can't get binder info in android. Here we can
keep the old valid mode if no explicity specify the mode value and also change
the mode value even the mount fails if the mode value is specified.
