Subject: [PATCH net] i40e: fix passing wrong error code to i40e_open()

The commit 6c167f582ea9 ("i40e: Refactor and cleanup i40e_open(),
adding i40e_vsi_open()") introduced a new function i40e_vsi_open()
with the regression by a typo. Due to the commit, the wrong error
code would be passed to i40e_open(). Fix this error in
i40e_vsi_open() by turning the macro into a negative value so that
i40e_open() could return the pertinent error code correctly.
