Add a dedicated helper to handle the setgid bit when creating a new file
in a setgid directory. This is a preparatory patch for moving setgid
stripping into the vfs. The patch contains no functional changes.

Currently the setgid stripping logic is open-coded directly in
inode_init_owner() and the individual filesystems are responsible for
handling setgid inheritance. Since this has proven to be brittle as
evidenced by old issues we uncovered over the last months (see [1] to
[3] below) we will try to move this logic into the vfs.
