do_wait: fix sys_waitid()-specific behaviour



do_wait() checks ->wo_info to figure out who is the caller.  If it's not
NULL the caller should be sys_waitid(), in that case do_wait() fixes up
the retval or zeros ->wo_info, depending on retval from underlying
function.

This is bug: user can pass ->wo_info == NULL and sys_waitid() will return
incorrect value.

man 2 waitid says:

	waitid(): returns 0 on success

Test-case:

	int main(void)
	{
		if (fork())
			assert(waitid(P_ALL, 0, NULL, WEXITED) == 0);

		return 0;
	}

Result:

	Assertion `waitid(P_ALL, 0, ((void *)0), 4) == 0' failed.

Move that code to sys_waitid().

User-visible change: sys_waitid() will return 0 on success, either
infop is set or not.

Note, there's another bug in wait_noreap_copyout() which affects
return value of sys_waitid(). It will be fixed in next patch.
