[dm-devel] [PATCH] Use only specific errors when failing dm-ioctl

The return codes of ioctl are part of device-mapper
API and only defined errno should be returned.

Unify return codes for device lookup function on one place
and allow ENOMEM and ENXIO for now.

(Later it can be added more codes as userspace is prepared
to handle them.)
