ROMFS: Fix up an error in iget removal
Fix up an error in iget removal in which romfs_lookup() making a successful call to romfs_iget() continues through the negative/error handling (previously the successful case jumped around the negative/error handling case): (1) inode is initialised to NULL at the top of the function, eliminating the need for specific negative-inode handling. This means the positive success handling now flows straight through. (2) Rename the labels to be clearer about what they mean. Also make romfs_lookup()'s result variable of type long so as to avoid 32-bit/64-bit conversions with PTR_ERR() and friends. Based upon a report and patch from Adam Richter.
