ipc, shm: guard against non-existant vma in shmdt(2)
Davidlohr Bueso [Wed, 11 Sep 2013 21:26:28 +0000 (14:26 -0700)]
commit 530fcd16d87cd2417c472a581ba5a1e501556c86 upstream.

When !CONFIG_MMU there's a chance we can derefence a NULL pointer when the
VM area isn't found - check the return value of find_vma().

Also, remove the redundant -EINVAL return: retval is set to the proper
return code and *only* changed to 0, when we actually unmap the segments.
