Subject[PATCH 5/6] call_usermodehelper: simplify/fix UMH_NO_WAIT case
__call_usermodehelper(UMH_NO_WAIT) has 2 problems:

- if kernel_thread() fails, call_usermodehelper_freeinfo()
is not called.

- for unknown reason UMH_NO_WAIT has UMH_WAIT_PROC logic,
we spawn yet another thread which waits until the user
mode application exits.

Change the UMH_NO_WAIT code to use ____call_usermodehelper() instead of
wait_for_helper(), and do call_usermodehelper_freeinfo() unconditionally.
We can rely on CLONE_VFORK, do_fork(CLONE_VFORK) until the child exits
or execs.

With or without this patch UMH_NO_WAIT does not report the error if
kernel_thread() fails, this is correct since the caller doesn't wait
for result.
