The quotactl manpage documents EFAULT as error code for invalid addr or
special argument, so we really should return -EFAULT here.

Existing quotactl gets this wrong as well:

	if (!special) {
		if (cmds == Q_SYNC)
			return quota_sync_all(type);
		return -ENODEV;
	}

Should we fix this or is there userspace code that is confused by a changed
return value?
