xfs_attr_node_addname()'s error handling tests whether it
should free "state" in the out: error handling label:

        if (state)

but an earlier free doesn't set state to NULL afterwards; this
could lead to a double free.  Fix it by setting state to NULL
after it's freed.

This was found by Coverity.

Note: Exact same patch should hit xfsprogs - I could send another,
or maybe SGI can just apply it in both trees?
