Subject[22/26] xen-gntalloc: signedness bug in add_grefs()
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@oracle.com>

commit 99cb2ddcc617f43917e94a4147aa3ccdb2bcd77e upstream.

gref->gref_id is unsigned so the error handling didn't work.
gnttab_grant_foreign_access() returns an int type, so we can add a
cast here, and it doesn't cause any problems.
gnttab_grant_foreign_access() can return a variety of errors
including -ENOSPC, -ENOSYS and -ENOMEM.
