fsnotify: use fsnotify_create_event to allocate the q_overflow event

Currently fsnotify defines a static fsnotify event which is sent when a
group overflows its allotted queue length.  This patch just allocates that
event from the event cache rather than defining it statically.  There is no
known reason that the current implementation is wrong, but this makes sure the
event is initialized and created like any other.
