Yes. it should be -EINVAL. fixed it.

arch_set_user_pkey_access() is the interface expected by the
architecture independent code. The __arch_set_user_pkey_access() is an
powerpc internal function that implements the bulk of the work. It can
be called by any of the pkeys internal code only. This gives me the
flexibility to change implementation without having to worry about
changing the interface.
