[Tarantool-patches] [PATCH 2/2] lua: separate sched and script diag

When Lua main script was launched, the sched fiber passed its own
diag to the script's fiber. When the script was finished, it put
its error into the diag. The sched fiber then checked if the diag
is empty to detect an error.

But it wasn't really correct. The error could also happen right in
the scheduler fiber in a libev callback. For example, in one of
ev_io callbacks in SWIM. Then the process would end with an error
even if the script was finished successfully.

These errors were not related to the main fiber executing the

The patch makes so the scheduler fiber's diag no longer is used as
an indication of an error in the script. Instead, a new diag is
created on the stack of the scheduler's fiber, where the Lua
script saves the error.

Closes #5906

+  termination it could return a non-0 exit code even if there was no errors in
