[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 11/18] xen/xenbus: ensure xenbus_map_ring_valloc() returns proper grant status

From: Juergen Gross <jgross@xxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 6b51fd3f65a22e3d1471b18a1d56247e246edd46 ]

xenbus_map_ring_valloc() maps a ring page and returns the status of the
used grant (0 meaning success).

There are Xen hypervisors which might return the value 1 for the status
of a failed grant mapping due to a bug. Some callers of
xenbus_map_ring_valloc() test for errors by testing the returned status
to be less than zero, resulting in no error detected and crashing later
due to a not available ring page.

Set the return value of xenbus_map_ring_valloc() to GNTST_general_error
in case the grant status reported by Xen is greater than zero.

This is part of XSA-316.
