IPC: consolidate all xxxctl_down() functions
semctl_down(), msgctl_down() and shmctl_down() are used to handle the same set of commands for each kind of IPC. They all start to do the same job (they retrieve the ipc and do some permission checks) before handling the commands on their own. This patch proposes to consolidate this by moving these same pieces of code into one common function called ipcctl_pre_down(). It simplifies a little these xxxctl_down() functions and increases a little the maintainability.
