3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Hans Verkuil <hans.verk...@cisco.com>

commit d83a8243aaefe62ace433e4384a4f077bed86acb upstream.

Some ioctls need to copy back the result even if the ioctl returned
an error. However, don't do this for the error code -ENOTTY.
It makes no sense in that cases.
