When the credentials have been recomputed per file the per_clear
status has not been recomputed.  Update the per file calcuations to
recompute per_clear on a per file basis in a separate variable and to
combine that variable into the final per_clear value.

This makes which personality bits are clear not depend on the
permissions of shell scripts with interpreters, but instead only on
the final bprm->file that bprm_fill_uid and
security_bprm_repopulate_creds are called upon.

As per the naming of "per_clear", I find the "active_per_clear" name
even more confusing.

It has all the same issues, but doubled down. What does "active" mean?
