SubjectRe: Patch, forward release() return values to the close() call
Whoops, my apologies.  The patch looks ok to me.

I read your text closely and the patch not close enough. As I said, it
is indeed wrong for a device driver to fail f_op->release(), "fail"
being defined as leaving fd state lying around, assuming that the system
will fail the fput().

But your patch merely propagates a return value, not change behavior,
which seems sane to me.
