Subject[PATCH 4.17 050/220] powerpc/powernv: copy/paste - Mask SO bit in CR
Date
4.17-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Haren Myneni <haren@us.ibm.com>

commit 75743649064ec0cf5ddd69f240ef23af66dde16e upstream.

NX can set the 3rd bit in CR register for XER[SO] (Summary overflow)
which is not related to paste request. The current paste function
returns failure for a successful request when this bit is set. So mask
this bit and check the proper return status.
