[PATCH] x86/kgdb: return 0 from kgdb_arch_set_breakpoint




err must be nonzero in order to reach text_poke(), which caused kgdb to
fail to set breakpoints:

	(gdb) break __x64_sys_sync
	Breakpoint 1 at 0xffffffff81288910: file ../fs/sync.c, line 124.
	(gdb) c
	Continuing.
	Warning:
	Cannot insert breakpoint 1.
	Cannot access memory at address 0xffffffff81288910

	Command aborted.

Fixes: 86a22057127d ("x86/kgdb: Avoid redundant comparison of patched code")
