firmware: improve LSM/IMA security behaviour
The firmware loader queries if LSM/IMA permits it to load firmware via the sysfs fallback. Unfortunately, the code does the opposite: it expressly permits sysfs fw loading if security_kernel_load_data( LOADING_FIRMWARE) returns -EACCES. This happens because a zero-on-success return value is cast to a bool that's true on success. Fix the return value handling so we get the correct behaviour.
