Subject[patch 15/51] dup2: Fix return value with oldfd == newfd and invalid fd
2.6.29-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Jeff Mahoney <jeffm@suse.com>

commit 2b79bc4f7ebbd5af3c8b867968f9f15602d5f802 upstream.

The return value of dup2 when oldfd == newfd and the fd isn't valid is
not getting properly sign extended. We end up with 4294967287 instead
of -EBADF.

I've reproduced this on SLE11 (2.6.27.21), openSUSE Factory
(2.6.29-rc5), and Ubuntu 9.04 (2.6.28).

This patch uses a signed int for the error value so it is properly
extended.

Commit 6c5d0512a091480c9f981162227fdb1c9d70e555 introduced this
regression.
