Subject[PATCH 3.10 28/34] ipc: fix compat msgrcv with negative msgtyp
Date
3.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Mateusz Guzik <mguzik@redhat.com>

commit e7ca2552369c1dfe0216c626baf82c3d83ec36bb upstream.

Compat function takes msgtyp argument as u32 and passes it down to
do_msgrcv which results in casting to long, thus the sign is lost and we
get a big positive number instead.

Cast the argument to signed type before passing it down.
