[PATCH] staging: android: ashmem: Fix zero area size return code

The previous inline comment stated that a size of zero would make the
ashmem_read_iter function return EOF, but it returned 0 instead.

Looking at other functions, such as ashmem_llseek or ashmem_mmap, it
appears the convention is to return -EINVAL if the region size is unset or
zero.

To be consistent with the checks, I changed the one occurrence that used
the ! operator to compare the size to check against equal-to-zero instead.
