    libgfapi: In glfs_resolve_at(), do not override the previous return value.
    Overriding ret to contain glfs_loc_touchup()s' return value implies that
    if glfs_loc_touchup() is successful, glfs_resolve_at() is also successful
    which is not necessarily true. This was causing glfs_resolve_at() to
    succeed even if it couldn't resolve, thus create and other fops would
    fail. Hence overriding ret only if glfs_loc_touchup() fails.
