up to:  71c95825289f: x86/unwind/orc: Fix error handling in __unwind_start()

A single bugfix for the ORC unwinder to ensure that the error flag which
tells the unwinding code whether a stack trace can be trusted or not is
always set correctly. This was messed up by a couple of changes in the
recent past.
