Subject: [PATCH] io_uring: fix xa_alloc_cycle() error return value check

We currently check for ret != 0 to indicate error, but '1' is a valid
return and just indicates that the allocation succeeded with a wrap.
Correct the check to be for < 0, like it was before the xarray

Fixes: 61cf93700fe6 ("io_uring: Convert personality_idr to XArray")
