proc: prevent accessing /proc/<PID>/environ until it's ready
If /proc/<PID>/environ gets read before the envp[] array is fully set up in create_{aout,elf,elf_fdpic,flat}_tables(), we might end up trying to read more bytes than are actually written, as env_start will already be set but env_end will still be zero, making the range calculation underflow, allowing to read beyond the end of what has been written. Fix this as it is done for /proc/<PID>/cmdline by testing env_end for zero. It is, apparently, intentionally set last in create_*_tables(). This bug was found by the PaX size_overflow plugin that detected the arithmetic underflow of 'this_len = env_end - (env_start + src)' when env_end is still zero. The expected consequence is that userland trying to access /proc/<PID>/environ of a not yet fully set up process may get inconsistent data as we're in the middle of copying in the environment variables.
