I think we should have a consens what kind of 802.15.4 error we
deliver in such a case. This is more some kind of bus/device error not
related to a 802.15.4 operation, and in this case we should use the
SYSTEM_ERROR which 802.15.4 says it can be used for a kind of "user
specific error"? I mean it is not user specific but 802.15.4 spec will
never reference it to make some special handling if it occurs... just
"something failed".
