Subject[PATCH 3.12 011/122] ipc/compat_sys_msgrcv: change msgtyp type from long to compat_long_t
From: Heiko Carstens <>

3.12-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


commit 291fdb0bcebd5e8db6af767c1fdc522167dad73d upstream.

Change the type of compat_sys_msgrcv's msgtyp parameter from long
to compat_long_t, since compat user space passes only a 32 bit signed
Let the compat wrapper do proper sign extension to 64 bit of this
