Subject: [PATCH v2 bpf-next 11/14] mlx5: xsk: diversify return values from xsk_wakeup call paths

Currently, when debugging AF_XDP workloads, one can correlate the -ENXIO
return code as the case that XSK is not in the bound state. Returning
same code from ndo_xsk_wakeup can be misleading and simply makes it
harder to follow what is going on.

Change ENXIO in mlx5's ndo_xsk_wakeup() implementation to EINVAL, so
that when probing it is clear that something is wrong on the driver
side, not the xsk_{recv,send}msg.

There is a -ENETDOWN that can happen from both kernel/driver sides
though, but I don't have a correct replacement for this on one of the
sides, so let's keep it that way.
