I am separating the code specific to user mode drivers from the code
for ordinary user space helpers.  Move setting of PF_UMH from
call_usermodehelper_exec_async which is core user mode helper code
into umh_pipe_setup which is user mode driver code.

The code is equally as easy to write in one location as the other and
the movement minimizes the impact of the user mode driver code on the
core of the user mode helper code.

Setting PF_UMH unconditionally is harmless as an action will only
happen if it is paired with an entry on umh_list.
