Herton Ronaldo Krzesinski Dec. 13, 2012, 1:59 p.m. -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Cyrill Gorcunov <gorcunov@openvz.org>

commit cacb6ba0f36ab14a507f4ee7697e8332899015d2 upstream.

We've observed that in case if UDP diag module is not
supported in kernel the netlink returns NLMSG_DONE without
notifying a caller that handler is missed.

This patch makes __inet_diag_dump to return error code instead.

So as example it become possible to detect such situation
and handle it gracefully on userspace level.
