Subject[PATCH 3.16 275/346] hexagon: fix strncpy_from_user() error return
3.16.39-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

commit f35c1e0671728d1c9abc405d05ef548b5fcb2fc4 upstream.

It's -EFAULT, not -1 (and contrary to the comment in there,
__strnlen_user() can return 0 - on faults).

Acked-by: Richard Kuo <rkuo@codeaurora.org>
