seq_file: return a negative error code when seq_path_root() fails.
Tetsuo Handa [Fri, 18 Sep 2009 20:05:59 +0000 (13:05 -0700)]
seq_path_root() is returning a return value of successful __d_path()
instead of returning a negative value when mangle_path() failed.

This is not a bug so far because nobody is using return value of
seq_path_root().
