This seems wrong.. What is the core code supposed to do if relinquish
fails?

Just returning an error code from transmit doesn't really do anything
helpful from a broad subsytem perspective.

I think if a driver can fail reliquish then it needs some kind of
strategy to recover.

Suggest trying the reliquish again on every next request until
success, otherwise fail request locality, potentially permanently.
