IPC: fix error check in all new xxx_lock() and xxx_exit_ns() functions
In the new implementation of the [sem|shm|msg]_lock[_check]() routines, we use the return value of ipc_lock() in container_of() without any check. But ipc_lock may return a errcode. The use of this errcode in container_of() may alter this errcode, and we don't want this. And in xxx_exit_ns, the pointer return by idr_find is of type 'struct kern_ipc_per'... Today, the code will work as is because the member used in these container_of() is the first member of its container (offset == 0), the errcode isn't changed then. But in the general case, we can't count on this assumption and this may lead later to a real bug if we don't correct this. Again, the proposed solution is simple and correct. But, as pointed by Nadia, with this solution, the same check will be done several times (in all sub-callers...), what is not very funny/optimal...
