fault-inject: fix wrong should_fail() decision in task context
Commit 1203c8e6fb0a ("fault-inject: simplify access check for fail-nth") unintentionally broke a conditional statement in should_fail(). Any faults are not injected in the task context by the change when the systematic fault injection is not used. This change restores to the previous correct behaviour.
