ipc/shm.c: use ERR_CAST() for shm_lock() error return
This uses ERR_CAST() instead of an open-coded cast, as it is casting across structure pointers, which upsets __randomize_layout: ipc/shm.c: In function `shm_lock': ipc/shm.c:209:9: note: randstruct: casting between randomized structure pointer types (ssa): `struct shmid_kernel' and `struct kern_ipc_perm' return (void *)ipcp; ^~~~~~~~~~~~ Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20180919180722.GA15073@beast Fixes: 82061c57ce93 ("ipc: drop ipc_lock()") Signed-off-by: Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org> Cc: Davidlohr Bueso <dbueso@suse.de> Cc: Manfred Spraul <manfred@colorfullife.com> Cc: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>
