    net: make getname() functions return length rather than use int* parameter · 9b2c45d4

    Changes since v1:
    Added changes in these files:
    All these functions either return a negative error indicator,
    or store length of sockaddr into "int *socklen" parameter
    and return zero on success.
    "int *socklen" parameter is awkward. For example, if caller does not
    care, it still needs to provide on-stack storage for the value
    it does not need.
    None of the many FOO_getname() functions of various protocols
    ever used old value of *socklen. They always just overwrite it.
    This change drops this parameter, and makes all these functions, on success,
    return length of sockaddr. It's always >= 0 and can be differentiated
    from an error.
    Tests in callers are changed from "if (err)" to "if (err < 0)", where needed.
    rpc_sockname() lost "int buflen" parameter, since its only use was
    to be passed to kernel_getsockname() as &buflen and subsequently
    not used in any way.
    Userspace API is not changed.
