Subject: [PATCH v2 01/27] staging: unisys: visorbus change -1 return values

From: Erik Arfvidson <erik.arfvidson@...sys.com>

This patch changes the vague -1 return values to -EFAULT since
it would be the most appropriate, given that this error
would only occur in an unexpected bad offset field.
Resulting in a bad address.
