the correct error is covered by put_old_timex32.

Fixes: f1f1d5ebd10f ("posix-timers: Introduce a syscall for clock tuning.")

Well, the non-negative return code (TIME_OK, TIME_INS, etc) is
clobbered by put_old_timex32().

This is not the correct commit for the "Fixes" tag.  Please find the
actual commit that introduced the issue.

In commit f1f1d5ebd10f the code looked like this...

	long compat_sys_clock_adjtime(clockid_t which_clock,
			struct compat_timex __user *utp)
	{
		struct timex txc;
		mm_segment_t oldfs;
		int err, ret;
	
		err = compat_get_timex(&txc, utp);
		if (err)
			return err;
	
		oldfs = get_fs();
		set_fs(KERNEL_DS);
		ret = sys_clock_adjtime(which_clock, (struct timex __user *) &txc);
		set_fs(oldfs);
	
		err = compat_put_timex(utp, &txc);
		if (err)
			return err;
	
		return ret;
	}

Thanks,
Richard

f1f1d5ebd10:
Introduce compat_sys_clock_adjtime

62a6fa97684:
rename compat_sys_clock_adjtime to COMPAT_SYSCALL_DEFINE2(clock_adjtime

3a4d44b6162:
move COMPAT_SYSCALL_DEFINE2(clock_adjtime from kernel/compat.c to 
kernel/time/posix-timers.c

8dabe7245bb:
COMPAT_SYSCALL_DEFINE2(clock_adjtime, ..
-> SYSCALL_DEFINE2(clock_adjtime32, ..

The implement of clock_adjtime32 is similar to compat_sys_clock_adjtime. 
And I think f1f1d5ebd10 introduced the problem actually.

Look at the code ^^^

See how 'ret' and 'err' are two separate variables?  It makes a difference.

Thanks,
Richard

Oh, yee.. Very thanks.

3a4d44b616 ("ntp: Move adjtimex related compat syscalls to native 
counterparts") made the change.
