I assume it's for the "preserve_creds" case where we don't even end up
setting creds at all.

Yeah, at some point we'll hit a bprm handler that doesn't set
'preserve_creds', and it all does get set in the end, but that's not
statically all that obvious.

I think it makes sense to initialize as much as possible from the
generic code, and rely as little as possible on what the binfmt
handlers end up actually doing.
