x86: get rid of the insane TIF_ABI_PENDING bit
commit 05d43ed8a89c159ff641d472f970e3f1baa66318 upstream. Now that the previous commit made it possible to do the personality setting at the point of no return, we do just that for ELF binaries. And suddenly all the reasons for that insane TIF_ABI_PENDING bit go away, and we can just make SET_PERSONALITY() just do the obvious thing for a 32-bit compat process. Everything becomes much more straightforward this way. Signed-off-by: H.
