AppArmor: Fix error returned when a path lookup is disconnected
The returning of -ESATLE when a path lookup fails as disconnected is wrong. Since AppArmor is rejecting the access return -EACCES instead. This also fixes a bug in complain (learning) mode where disconnected paths are denied because -ESTALE errors are not ignored causing failures that can change application behavior.
