[PATCH] sys_pselect7 vs compat_sys_pselect7 uaccess error handling
Heiko Carstens [Fri, 3 Nov 2006 06:06:58 +0000 (22:06 -0800)]
758333458aa719bfc26ec16eafd4ad3a9e96014d fixes the not checked copy_to_user
return value of compat_sys_pselect7.  I ran into this too because of an old
source tree, but my fix would look quite a bit different to Andi's fix.

The reason is that the compat function IMHO should behave the very same as
the non-compat function if possible.  Since sys_pselect7 does not return
-EFAULT in this specific case, change the compat code so it behaves like
sys_pselect7.
