Subject[PATCH] err.h: allow IS_ERR_VALUE to handle properly more types
Date
Current implementation of IS_ERR_VALUE works correctly only with
following types:
- unsigned long, unsigned long long,
- short, int, long.
Other types are handled incorrectly either on 32-bit either on 64-bit
either on both architectures.
The patch fixes it by comparing argument with MAX_ERRNO casted
to argument's type for unsigned types and comparing with zero for signed
types. As a result all integer types bigger than char are handled properly.

Hi,

I have analyzed usage of IS_ERR_VALUE using coccinelle and in about 35 cases
it is used incorrectly, ie it can hide errors depending of 32/64 bit architecture.
Instead of fixing usage I propose to enhance the macro to cover more types.
And just for record: the macro is used 101 times with signed variables, I am not
sure if it should be preferred over simple comparison "ret < 0", but the new version
can do it as well.

In my previous attempt I have added type checking to the macro, I am not sure which
approach is better[1]. Anyway the previous patch did not catch developers attention.
