Subject: [PATCH 3.13 232/259] net: sctp: propagate sysctl errors from proc_do* properly

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

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

From: Daniel Borkmann <dborkman@...hat.com>

[ Upstream commit ff5e92c1affe7166b3f6e7073e648ed65a6e2e59 ]

sysctl handler proc_sctp_do_hmac_alg(), proc_sctp_do_rto_min() and
proc_sctp_do_rto_max() do not properly reflect some error cases
when writing values via sysctl from internal proc functions such
as proc_dointvec() and proc_dostring().

In all these cases we pass the test for write != 0 and partially
do additional work just to notice that additional sanity checks
fail and we return with hard-coded -EINVAL while proc_do*
functions might also return different errors. So fix this up by
simply testing a successful return of proc_do* right after
calling it.

This also allows to propagate its return value onwards to the user.
While touching this, also fix up some minor style issues.

Fixes: 4f3fdf3bc59c ("sctp: add check rto_min and rto_max in sysctl")
Fixes: 3c68198e7511 ("sctp: Make hmac algorithm selection for cookie generation dynamic")
