From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de>

The old ftruncate() syscall, using the 32-bit off_t misses a sign
extension when called in compat mode on 64-bit architectures.  As a
result, passing a negative length accidentally succeeds in truncating
to file size between 2GiB and 4GiB.

Changing the type of the compat syscall to the signed compat_off_t
changes the behavior so it instead returns -EINVAL.

The native entry point, the truncate() syscall and the corresponding
loff_t based variants are all correct already and do not suffer
from this mistake.

Fixes: 3f6d078d4acc ("fix compat truncate/ftruncate")
