Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.9 071/141] rtc: hym8563: Return -EINVAL if the time is known to be invalid
Date: Fri, 14 Feb 2020 11:20:11 -0500
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

[ Upstream commit f236a2a2ebabad0848ad0995af7ad1dc7029e895 ]

The current code returns -EPERM when the voltage loss bit is set.
Since the bit indicates that the time value is not valid, return
-EINVAL instead, which is the appropriate error code for this
