mm: fix error case in mlock downgrade reversion

Commit 27421e21

, Manually revert
"mlock: downgrade mmap sem while populating mlocked regions", has
introduced its own regression: __mlock_vma_pages_range() may report
an error (for example, -EFAULT from trying to lock down pages from
beyond EOF), but mlock_vma_pages_range() must hide that from its
callers as before.
