[PATCH 4.14 41/70] kprobes: Fix error check when reusing optimized probes

commit 5f843ed415581cfad4ef8fefe31c138a8346ca8a upstream.

The following commit introduced a bug in one of our error paths:

819319fc9346 ("kprobes: Return error if we fail to reuse kprobe instead of BUG_ON()")

it missed to handle the return value of kprobe_optready() as
error-value. In reality, the kprobe_optready() returns a bool
result, so "true" case must be passed instead of 0.

This causes some errors on kprobe boot-time selftests on ARM:

[ ] Beginning kprobe tests...
[ ] Probe ARM code
[ ] kprobe
[ ] kretprobe
[ ] ARM instruction simulation
[ ] Check decoding tables
[ ] Run test cases
[ ] FAIL: test_case_handler not run
[ ] FAIL: Test andge r10, r11, r14, asr r7
[ ] FAIL: Scenario 11
[ ] FAIL: Scenario 7
[ ] Total instruction simulation tests=1631, pass=1433 fail=198
[ ] kprobe tests failed

This can happen if an optimized probe is unregistered and next
kprobe is registered on same address until the previous probe
is not reclaimed.

If this happens, a hidden aggregated probe may be kept in memory,
and no new kprobe can probe same address. Also, in that case
register_kprobe() will return "1" instead of minus error value,
which can mislead caller logic.
