Series nvme: improve error handling and ana_state to work well with dm-multipath | expand

Whether or not ANA is present is a choice of the target implementation;
the host (and whether it supports multipathing) has _zero_ influence on
this. If the target declares a path as 'inaccessible' the path _is_
inaccessible to the host. As such, ANA support should be functional
even if native multipathing is not.

Introduce ability to always re-read ANA log page as required due to ANA
error and make current ANA state available via sysfs -- even if native
multipathing is disabled on the host (e.g. nvme_core.multipath=N).
This is achieved by factoring out nvme_update_ana() and calling it in
nvme_complete_rq() for all FAILOVER requests.

This affords userspace access to the current ANA state independent of
which layer might be doing multipathing. This makes 'nvme list-subsys'
show ANA state for all NVMe subsystems with multiple controllers. It
also allows userspace multipath-tools to rely on the NVMe driver for
ANA support while dm-multipath takes care of multipathing.

And as always, if embedded NVMe users do not want any performance
overhead associated with ANA or native NVMe multipathing they can
