Vitaly Mayatskikh - Sept. 29, 2008, 9:24 a.m.
rtas_log_read() doesn't check file flags for O_NONBLOCK and blocks
non-blocking reader of /proc/ppc64/rtas/error_log if there's no data
available. Patch makes sure that non-blocking reader will never
blocks.

Also rtas_log_read() returns now with ENODATA to prevent suspending of
process in wait_event_interruptible() when logging facility was
switched off and log is already empty.
