Subject[PATCH 4.4 38/74] netfilter: fix IS_ERR_VALUE usage
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Pablo Neira Ayuso <pablo@netfilter.org>

commit 92b4423e3a0bc5d43ecde4bcad871f8b5ba04efd upstream.

This is a forward-port of the original patch from Andrzej Hajda,
he said:

"IS_ERR_VALUE should be used only with unsigned long type.
Otherwise it can work incorrectly. To achieve this function
xt_percpu_counter_alloc is modified to return unsigned long,
and its result is assigned to temporary variable to perform
error checking, before assigning to .pcnt field.

The patch follows conclusion from discussion on LKML [1][2].

[2]: http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/2150581"

Original patch from Andrzej is here:

http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/582970/

This patch has clashed with input validation fixes for x_tables.
