fs/binfmt_misc.c: do not allow offset overflow

WHen registering a new binfmt_misc handler, it is possible to overflow
the offset to get a negative value, which might crash the system, or
possibly leak kernel data.

Here is a crash log when 2500000000 was used as an offset:

  BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffff989cfd6edca0
  IP: load_misc_binary+0x22b/0x470 [binfmt_misc]

  Hardware name: QEMU Standard PC (i440FX + PIIX, 1996), BIOS 1.11.1-1 04/01/2014
  RIP: 0010:load_misc_binary+0x22b/0x470 [binfmt_misc]
  Call Trace:

Use kstrtoint instead of simple_strtoul.  It will work as the code
already set the delimiter byte to '\0' and we only do it when the field
is not empty.

Tested with offsets -1, 2500000000, UINT_MAX and INT_MAX.  Also tested
with examples documented at Documentation/admin-guide/binfmt-misc.rst
and other registrations from packages on Ubuntu.
