stacktrace: Unbreak stack_trace_save_tsk_reliable()

Miroslav reported that the livepatch self-tests were failing, specifically
a case in which the consistency model ensures that a current executing
function is not allowed to be patched, "TEST: busy target module".

Recent renovations of stack_trace_save_tsk_reliable() left it returning
only an -ERRNO success indication in some configuration combinations:

klp_check_stack()
ret = stack_trace_save_tsk_reliable()
#ifdef CONFIG_ARCH_STACKWALK && CONFIG_HAVE_RELIABLE_STACKTRACE
stack_trace_save_tsk_reliable()
ret = arch_stack_walk_reliable()
return 0
return -EINVAL
...
return ret;
...
if (ret < 0)
/* stack_trace_save_tsk_reliable error */
nr_entries = ret; << 0

Previously (and currently for !CONFIG_ARCH_STACKWALK &&
CONFIG_HAVE_RELIABLE_STACKTRACE) stack_trace_save_tsk_reliable() returned
the number of entries that it consumed in the passed storage array.

In the case of the above config and trace, be sure to return the
stacktrace_cookie.len on stack_trace_save_tsk_reliable() success.
