binfmt_misc: fix false -ENOEXEC when coupled with other binary handlers
In case the binfmt_misc binary handler is registered *before* the e.g. script one (when for example being compiled as a module) the following situation may occur: 1. user launches a script, whose interpreter is a misc binary; 2. the load_misc_binary sets the misc_bang and returns -ENOEVEC, since the binary is a script; 3. the load_script_binary loads one and calls for search_binary_hander to run the interpreter; 4. the load_misc_binary is called again, but refuses to load the binary due to misc_bang bit set. The fix is to move the misc_bang setting lower - prior to the actual call to the search_binary_handler.
