[PATCH] arm64: ptrace: Fix missing return in hw breakpoint code

This was found by inspection - I don't work with aarch32 very
much, but I believe there is a missing return in this code,
since the second force_sig_fault here would override the
first, thus making the whole compat code here pointless.

This was left over in my working tree from when I was working
through various aarch64 ptrace weirdness last year and I don't
think I ever got around to submitting it, but I just looked
through my work from back then and came across this again -
my apologies if I'm wrong about this - it's been a while,
so I'm not really read into this code anymore.
