setmetamode: use unsigned int type for KDGKBMETA / KDSKBMETA firstname.lastname@example.org reported that he detected a stack smash and analyzed the problem as allocating too little space for the resulting put_user after calling ioctl KDGKBMETA. The ometa variable should be defined as unsigned int. While at it and for correctness, also nmeta and thus the val member of the struct meta where changed to unsigned int as it seems the kernel wants to take this type (but should be harmless to use char).
