Subject[PATCH 5.0 057/246] mm/resource: Return real error codes from walk failures
Date
5.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

[ Upstream commit 5cd401ace914dc68556c6d2fcae0c349444d5f86 ]

walk_system_ram_range() can return an error code either becuase
*it* failed, or because the 'func' that it calls returned an
error. The memory hotplug does the following:

ret = walk_system_ram_range(..., func);
if (ret)
return ret;

and 'ret' makes it out to userspace, eventually. The problem
s, walk_system_ram_range() failues that result from *it* failing
(as opposed to 'func') return -1. That leads to a very odd
-EPERM (-1) return code out to userspace.

Make walk_system_ram_range() return -EINVAL for internal
failures to keep userspace less confused.

This return code is compatible with all the callers that I
audited.
