Subject[033/119] rtc: v3020: fix v3020_mmio_read_bit()
2.6.31-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Scott Valentine <svalentine@concentris-systems.com>
commit bcb3a1676b87effbdeffe8da5c44f63433d158d9 upstream.

v3020_mmio_read_bit() always returns 0 when left_shift > 7.
v3020_mmio_read_bit()'s return type is (unsigned char). The code returns
a value masked by (1 << left_shift) that is casted to the return type. If
left_shift is larger than 7, the cast will always result in a 0 return
value. The problem was discovered with left_shift = 16, and the included
patch corrects the problem.

The bug was introduced in the last (Apr 3 2009) commit of the file, kernel
versions 2.6.30 and later.
