kernel/groups.c: remove return value of set_groups
After commit 6307f8fee295 ("security: remove dead hook task_setgroups"), set_groups will always return zero, so we could just remove return value of set_groups. This patch reduces code size, and simplfies code to use set_groups, because we don't need to check its return value any more.
