Subject[PATCH 3.2 015/115] watchdog: rc32434_wdt: fix ioctl error handling
3.2.80-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: "Michael S. Tsirkin" <mst@redhat.com>

commit 10e7ac22cdd4d211cef99afcb9371b70cb175be6 upstream.

Calling return copy_to_user(...) in an ioctl will not do the right thing
if there's a pagefault: copy_to_user returns the number of bytes not
copied in this case.

Fix up watchdog/rc32434_wdt to do
return copy_to_user(...)) ? -EFAULT : 0;

instead.
