[PATCH 4.9 029/111] powerpc/powernv: opal_put_chars partial write fix

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Sep 24 2018 - 08:01:12 EST

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


From: Nicholas Piggin <npiggin@xxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit bd90284cc6c1c9e8e48c8eadd0c79574fcce0b81 ]

The intention here is to consume and discard the remaining buffer
upon error. This works if there has not been a previous partial write.
If there has been, then total_len is no longer total number of bytes
to copy. total_len is always "bytes left to copy", so it should be
added to written bytes.

This code may not be exercised any more if partial writes will not be
hit, but this is a small bugfix before a larger change.
