Subject: [PATCH 4.18 24/35] uio: fix wrong return value from uio_mmap()

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

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

From: Hailong Liu <liu.hailong6@....com.cn>

commit e7de2590f18a272e63732b9d519250d1b522b2c4 upstream.

uio_mmap has multiple fail paths to set return value to nonzero then
goto out. However, it always returns *0* from the *out* at end, and
this will mislead callers who check the return value of this function.

Fixes: 57c5f4df0a5a0ee ("uio: fix crash after the device is unregistered")
