when attrs coming in as part of create request contain modes other
than mode, they were getting discarded previously and a setattr
was getting performed on a 0-filled iatt structure. This would
result in EPERM at the access control translator as non-root users
cannot chown a file to uid 0.

Not seen with Linux NFS client as it (very likely) relies upon
auth-unix to set the ownership of the file or sends an explicit
setattr after the create.
