sys_personality: remove the bogus checks in sys_personality()->__set_personality() path
Cleanup, no functional changes.
- __set_personality() always changes ->exec_domain/personality, the
special case when ->exec_domain remains the same buys nothing but
complicates the code. Unify both cases to simplify the code.
- The -EINVAL check in sys_personality() was never right. If we assume
that set_personality() can fail we should check the value it returns
instead of verifying that task->personality was actually changed.
Remove it. Before the previous patch it was possible to hit this case
due to overflow problems, but this -EINVAL just indicated the kernel
OTOH, probably it makes sense to change lookup_exec_domain() to return
ERR_PTR() instead of default_exec_domain if the search in exec_domains
list fails, and report this error to the user-space. But this means
another user-space change, and we have in-kernel users which need fixes.
For example, PER_OSF4 falls into PER_MASK for unkown reason and nobody
cares to register this domain.
