Subject[PATCH 4.19 097/110] tmpfs: make lseek(SEEK_DATA/SEK_HOLE) return ENXIO with a negative offset
Date
4.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

[ Upstream commit 1a413646931cb14442065cfc17561e50f5b5bb44 ]

Other filesystems such as ext4, f2fs and ubifs all return ENXIO when
lseek (SEEK_DATA or SEEK_HOLE) requests a negative offset.

man 2 lseek says

: EINVAL whence is not valid. Or: the resulting file offset would be
: negative, or beyond the end of a seekable device.
:
: ENXIO whence is SEEK_DATA or SEEK_HOLE, and the file offset is beyond
: the end of the file.

Make tmpfs return ENXIO under these circumstances as well. After this,
tmpfs also passes xfstests's generic/448.
