Subject[PATCH 4.19 46/49] perf: Fix task_function_call() error handling
Date
From: Kajol Jain <kjain@linux.ibm.com>

[ Upstream commit 6d6b8b9f4fceab7266ca03d194f60ec72bd4b654 ]

The error handling introduced by commit:

2ed6edd33a21 ("perf: Add cond_resched() to task_function_call()")

looses any return value from smp_call_function_single() that is not
{0, -EINVAL}. This is a problem because it will return -EXNIO when the
target CPU is offline. Worse, in that case it'll turn into an infinite
loop.

Fixes: 2ed6edd33a21 ("perf: Add cond_resched() to task_function_call()")
