x86/pkeys: Don't check if PKRU is zero before writing it

write_pkru() checks if the current value is the same as the expected
value. So instead of just checking if the current and new value is zero
(and skip the write in such a case) we can benefit from that.

Remove the zero check of PKRU, __write_pkru() provides such a check now.
