Subject[PATCH 4.20 06/50] tools: iio: iio_generic_buffer: make num_loops signed
Date
4.20-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Martin Kelly <mkelly@xevo.com>

commit b119d3bc328e7a9574861ebe0c2110e2776c2de1 upstream.

Currently, num_loops is unsigned, but it's set by strtoll, which returns a
(signed) long long int. This could lead to overflow, and it also makes the
check "num_loops < 0" always be false, since num_loops is unsigned.
Setting num_loops to -1 to loop forever is almost working because num_loops
is getting set to a very high number, but it's technically still incorrect.

Fix this issue by making num_loops signed. This also fixes an error found
by Smatch.
