Hi Petr,

This change is trivial, but since folks are letting loose various static
code analysers on the livepatch samples and selftests, could you add
this to your patchset. The shadow variable selftest is happy with this
change since it expects to see specific (non-negative) ptr_id values.

Thanks,

Subject: [PATCH] livepatch: return -ENOMEM on ptr_id() allocation failure

Fixes the following smatch warning:

lib/livepatch/test_klp_shadow_vars.c:47 ptr_id() warn: returning -1 instead of -ENOMEM is sloppy
