So I think this fix is still missing a good chunk of the exception
handling it should have. Specifically we will end up failing and then
trying to allocate for the next rule. It seems like we should probably
stop trying to program rules and unwind the work we have already done.

Also it would probably make sense to return an error if we are unable
to program one of the rules into the hardware. Otherwise things will
fail and the user will never know why.
