Actually, I'd really be happier if these were a bitmap rather than an
enumeration.  That way we can divide them easily into cause (Driver,
Device or Transport) and severity (fatal or retryable), so something
like dm-multipath would only be interested in errors it made sense for a
path to be failed over for (i.e. all transport and driver errors).
