Subject: [PATCH v3 5/6] ANDROID: binder: don't check prio permissions on restore.

Because we have disabled RT priority inheritance for
the regular binder domain, the following can happen:

1) thread A (prio 98) calls into thread B
2) because RT prio inheritance is disabled, thread B
   runs at the lowest nice (prio 100) instead
3) thread B calls back into A; A will run at prio 100
   for the duration of the transaction
4) When thread A is done with the call from B, we will
   try to restore the prio back to 98. But, we fail
   because the process doesn't hold CAP_SYS_NICE,
   neither is RLIMIT_RT_PRIO set.

While the proper fix going forward will be to
correctly apply CAP_SYS_NICE or RLIMIT_RT_PRIO,
for now it seems reasonable to not check permissions
on the restore path.
