Subject[PATCH 3.16 305/346] openrisc: fix the fix of copy_from_user()
3.16.39-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Guenter Roeck <linux@roeck-us.net>

commit 8e4b72054f554967827e18be1de0e8122e6efc04 upstream.

Since commit acb2505d0119 ("openrisc: fix copy_from_user()"),
copy_from_user() returns the number of bytes requested, not the
number of bytes not copied.
