[PATCH 10/52] SUNRPC: Fix the return value in gss_import_sec_context()

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Thu Jan 14 2010 - 17:39:18 EST

From: Trond Myklebust <Trond.Myklebust@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit b891e4a05ef6beac85465295a032431577c66b16 upstream.

If the context allocation fails, it will return GSS_S_FAILURE, which is
neither a valid error code, nor is it even negative.

Return ENOMEM instead...
