When the no new privs code was added[1], a test was added to
cap_bprm_set_creds to ensure that the credential change were always
reverted if no new privs was set.

That test has been refactored into a test to not make the credential
change in bprm_fill_uid when no new privs is set.  Remove that
unncessary test as it can now been seen by a quick inspection that
execution can never make it to the test with no new privs set.

The same change[1] also added a test that guaranteed the credentials
would never change when no_new_privs was set, so the test I am removing
was never necessary but historically that was far from obvious.
