nss_nonlocal: initgroups_dyn should return success when adding only magic groups

Upstream bug:


When the groups_nonlocal chain returns NSS_STATUS_NOTFOUND, _nss_nonlocal_initgroups_dyn also returns NSS_STATUS_NOTFOUND even though it has successfully added the magic nss-nonlocal-users group. Based on what seems to be happening on scripts (I have not yet reproduced on Debathena), I theorize that this will cause nscd to ignore the nss-nonlocal-users group for users that aren’t in any other secondary groups, and that the fix is to have _nss_nonlocal_initgroups_dyn return NSS_STATUS_SUCCESS in this case instead.
