wait_noreap_copyout(): check for ->wo_info != NULL

Current behaviour of sys_waitid() looks odd.  If user passes infop ==
NULL, sys_waitid() returns success.  When user additionally specifies flag
WNOWAIT, sys_waitid() returns -EFAULT on the same conditions.  When user
combines WNOWAIT with WCONTINUED, sys_waitid() again returns success.

This patch adds check for ->wo_info in wait_noreap_copyout().

User-visible change: starting from this commit, sys_waitid() always checks
infop != NULL and does not fail if it is NULL.
