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


From: Vitaly Kuznetsov <vkuznets@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 87dffe86d406bee8782cac2db035acb9a28620a7 ]

When guest receives a sysrq request from the host it acknowledges it by
writing '\0' to control/sysrq xenstore node. This, however, make xenstore
watch fire again but xenbus_scanf() fails to parse empty value with "%c"
format string:

sysrq: SysRq : Emergency Sync
Emergency Sync complete
xen:manage: Error -34 reading sysrq code in control/sysrq

Ignore -ERANGE the same way we already ignore -ENOENT, empty value in
control/sysrq is totally legal.
