SubjectRe: [PATCH] arch:powerpc simple_write_to_buffer return check
From
Date
Please provide some description of the change.

And please clarify the patch subject, because as far as I can see, the return is already checked
allthough the check seams wrong.

Why return -EFAULT when the function has returned -EINVAL ?
And why is it -EFAULT when ret is 0 ? EFAULT means error accessing memory.
