[PATCH] Check return value of copy_to_user in compat_sys_pselect7
Andi Kleen [Tue, 26 Sep 2006 08:52:39 +0000 (10:52 +0200)]
Fix

linux/fs/compat.c: In function compat_sys_pselect7
linux/fs/compat.c:1869: warning: ignoring return value of copy_to_user, declared with attribute warn_unused_result

To make it easier to handle I changed to semantics to not try to
write out a timespec if an error occurred. I hope that's ok.
