If the call to btrfs_dev_replace_by_ioctl() failed we would overwrite the
error returned to user space with -EFAULT if the call to copy_to_user()
failed as well. Fix that by calling copy_to_user() only if no error
happened before.

  Its the same thing here too.. we copy ret to args->result even
  if it fails. Now with this patch, if ret is non-zero, its not
  in args->result at the userland anymore.  If there
  is any tool which just checks args->result will be at problem,
  which I think is rare, should be ok. It would have been nice
  to have this design as in this patch, in the original code.

------
  530         ret = btrfs_dev_replace_start(fs_info, 
args->start.tgtdev_name,
  531                                         args->start.srcdevid,
  532                                         args->start.srcdev_name,
  533 
args->start.cont_reading_from_srcdev_mode);
  534         args->result = ret;
