Subject[PATCH 2/5] exec: kill ->load_binary != NULL check in search_binary_handler()
search_binary_handler() checks ->load_binary != NULL for no reason,
this method should be always defined. Turn this check into WARN_ON()
and move it into __register_binfmt().

Also, kill the function pointer. The current code looks confusing,
as if ->load_binary can go away after read_unlock(&binfmt_lock).
But we rely on module_get(fmt->module), this fmt can't be changed
or unregistered, otherwise this code is buggy anyway.
