Subject[PATCH] kernel/groups.c: consider about NULL for 'group_info' in all related extern functions
groups_alloc() can return NULL for 'group_info', also group_search()
already considers about NULL for 'group_info', so can assume the caller
has right to use all related extern functions when 'group_info' is NULL.

For groups_free(), need check NULL to match groups_alloc(), just like
kmalloc/free().

For set_groups(), can allow the caller to set NULL parameter to new
'cred'.

For system call getgroups(), if 'cred->group_info' is NULL, need return
the related error code (no related data), also need change the related
man page ("man 2 getgroups") to complete the return value.
