[PATCH v7 16/22] powerpc: define syscall_get_error()

From: Dmitry V. Levin
Date: Sun Jan 06 2019 - 21:54:24 EST

syscall_get_error() is required to be implemented on this
architecture in addition to already implemented syscall_get_nr(),
syscall_get_arguments(), syscall_get_return_value(), and
syscall_get_arch() functions in order to extend the generic
ptrace API with PTRACE_GET_SYSCALL_INFO request.

v7: unchanged
v6: unchanged
This change has been tested with
tools/testing/selftests/ptrace/get_syscall_info.c and strace,
so it's correct from PTRACE_GET_SYSCALL_INFO point of view.

This cast doubts on commit v4.3-rc1~86^2~81 that changed
syscall_set_return_value() in a way that doesn't quite match
syscall_get_error(), but syscall_set_return_value() is out
of scope of this series, so I'll just let you know my concerns.
