Subject: [REVIEW][PATCH 22/26] signal: Properly set TRACE_SIGNAL_LOSE_INFO in __send_signal

Any time siginfo is not stored in the signal queue information is
lost.  Therefore set TRACE_SIGNAL_LOSE_INFO every time the code does
not allocate a signal queue entry, and a queue overflow abort is not
triggered.

Fixes: ba005e1f4172 ("tracepoint: Add signal loss events")
