Subject: [PATCH] xen/pvcalls: fix unsigned less than zero error check

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@...onical.com>

The check on bedata->ref is never true because ref is an unsigned
integer. Fix this by assigning signed int ret to the return of the
call to gnttab_claim_grant_reference so the -ve return can be checked.

Detected by CoverityScan, CID#1460358 ("Unsigned compared against 0")

Fixes: 219681909913 ("xen/pvcalls: connect to the backend")
