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


From: KOSAKI Motohiro <kosaki.motohiro@jp.fujitsu.com>

commit fa9dc265ace9774e62f0e31108e5f47911124bda upstream.

Commit a45185d2d "cpumask: convert kernel/compat.c" broke libnuma, which
abuses sched_getaffinity to find out NR_CPUS in order to parse

On NUMA systems with less than 32 possibly CPUs, the current
compat_sys_sched_getaffinity now returns '4' instead of the actual
NR_CPUS/8, which makes libnuma bail out when parsing the cpumap.

The libnuma call sched_getaffinity(0, bitmap, 4096) at first.  It mean
the libnuma expect the return value of sched_getaffinity() is either len
argument or NR_CPUS.  But it doesn't expect to return nr_cpu_ids.

Strictly speaking, userland requirement are

1) Glibc assume the return value mean the lengh of initialized
   of mask argument. E.g. if sched_getaffinity(1024) return 128,
   glibc make zero fill rest 896 byte.
2) Libnuma assume the return value can be used to guess NR_CPUS
   in kernel. It assume len-arg<NR_CPUS makes -EINVAL. But
   it try len=4096 at first and 4096 is always bigger than
   NR_CPUS. Then, if we remove strange min_length normalization,
   we never hit -EINVAL case.

sched_getaffinity() already solved this issue.  This patch adapts
compat_sys_sched_getaffinity() to match the non-compat case.
