Random cleanup - this code was duplicated and it's not really specific
to md.

Also added the ability to return the actual error code.

Who is going to make use of actual error code and why checking
BIO_UPTODATE is not sufficient (as existing code is doing)?

Some things do, though it's not common and I forget where I saw it -
checking for -ENOTSUPPORTED vs. other stuff

There are also additional error codes like -ENOLINK when the nexus is dropped. Quite useful in multipathed or clustered environs.
