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

------------------

From: Tommi Rantala <tt.rantala@gmail.com>

commit 6e51fe7572590d8d86e93b547fab6693d305fd0d upstream.

Consider the following program, that sets the second argument to the
sendto() syscall incorrectly:

 #include <string.h>
 #include <arpa/inet.h>
 #include <sys/socket.h>

 int main(void)
 {
         int fd;
         struct sockaddr_in sa;

         fd = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 132 /*IPPROTO_SCTP*/);
         if (fd < 0)
                 return 1;

         memset(&sa, 0, sizeof(sa));
         sa.sin_family = AF_INET;
         sa.sin_addr.s_addr = inet_addr("127.0.0.1");
         sa.sin_port = htons(11111);

         sendto(fd, NULL, 1, 0, (struct sockaddr *)&sa, sizeof(sa));

         return 0;
 }

We get -ENOMEM:

 $ strace -e sendto ./demo
 sendto(3, NULL, 1, 0, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(11111), sin_addr=inet_addr("127.0.0.1")}, 16) = -1 ENOMEM (Cannot allocate memory)

Propagate the error code from sctp_user_addto_chunk(), so that we will
tell user space what actually went wrong:

 $ strace -e sendto ./demo
 sendto(3, NULL, 1, 0, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(11111), sin_addr=inet_addr("127.0.0.1")}, 16) = -1 EFAULT (Bad address)

Noticed while running Trinity (the syscall fuzzer).
