Subject[ 088/184] xfrm_user: return error pointer instead of NULL #2
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Mathias Krause <minipli@googlemail.com>

commit c25463722509fef0ed630b271576a8c9a70236f3 upstream.

When dump_one_policy() returns an error, e.g. because of a too small
buffer to dump the whole xfrm policy, xfrm_policy_netlink() returns
NULL instead of an error pointer. But its caller expects an error
pointer and therefore continues to operate on a NULL skbuff.
