Subject: [PATCH 3/9] dm: add add_disk() error handling

We never checked for errors on add_disk() as this function
returned void. Now that this is fixed, use the shiny new
error handling.

There are two calls to dm_setup_md_queue() which can fail then,
one on dm_early_create() and we can easily see that the error path
there calls dm_destroy in the error path. The other use case is on
the ioctl table_load case. If that fails userspace needs to call
the DM_DEV_REMOVE_CMD to cleanup the state - similar to any other
