From: Yann Droneaud <ydroneaud at opteya.com>

commit 08e74c4b00c30c232d535ff368554959403d0432 upstream.

In case of error when writing to userspace, the function mthca_create_cq()
does not set an error code before following its error path.

This patch sets the error code to -EFAULT when ib_copy_to_udata() fails.

This was caught when using spatch (aka. coccinelle)
to rewrite call to ib_copy_{from,to}_udata().
