fsnotify: Do not return merged event from fsnotify_add_notify_event()
The event returned from fsnotify_add_notify_event() cannot ever be used safely as the event may be freed by the time the function returns (after dropping notification_mutex). So change the prototype to just return whether the event was added or merged into some existing event.
