Before the change nss_database_check_reload_and_get() did not populate
the '*result' value when it returned success in a case of chroot
detection. This caused initgroups() to use garage pointer in the
following test (extracted from unbound):

```

int main() {
    // load some NSS modules
    struct passwd * pw = getpwnam("root");

    chdir("/tmp");
    chroot("/tmp");
    chdir("/");
    // access nsswitch.conf in a chroot
    initgroups("root", 0);
}
```

LGTM although I tweaked the patch subject for length.  Committed.
Thanks!
