<0 return value here means that the queue is not empty, and the device
is throttled.  If you want to do this, just branch down to the end of
the function which asserts that q->q.qlen is not negative, and returns
it.

That will achieve the right effect.

But I'm not so sure about this idea, I have this strange feeling that
we do things this way for a reason... Hmmm...
