Subject[PATCH] firewire-sbp2: Initialise sbp2_orb->rcode for management ORBs
When sending ORBs the struct sbp2_orb->rcode field should be initialised
to -1 otherwise complete_transaction() assumes the request is successful
(RCODE_COMPLETE is 0). When sending managament ORBs, such as LOGIN or
LOGOUT, this was not done and so the initiator would wait for the
request to time out before trying again.

Without this, LOGINs are only retried when the management ORB times out,
rather than the initiator noticing an error occurred and retrying soon
after. For targets that advertise more than one LUN per unit, and can
only accept one management request at a time, this means LUNs are only
logged in one per timeout period.
