Denial of service vulnerability in kernel sound driver

A denial of service vulnerability in the kernel could allow a
local malicious application to cause a device reboot.
This issue is rated as Low because it is a temporary denial of
service.

The original fix used -EIO as the error return code but
the function signatures had unsigned int as the return type.
The updated fix uses -1 as the error return code instead of -EIO
so the error return code is more clearly defined.

CVE-2016-6690
