kfifo: sanitize *_user error handling
Right now for kfifo_*_user it's not easily possible to distingush between a user copy failing and the FIFO not containing enough data. The problem is that both conditions are multiplexed into the same return code. Avoid this by moving the "copy length" into a separate output parameter and only return 0/-EFAULT in the main return value. I didn't fully adapt the weird "record" variants, those seem to be unused anyways and were rather messy (should they be just removed?) I would appreciate some double checking if I did all the conversions correctly.
