Subject[PATCH 08/15] sas_ata: sas_ata_qc_issue should return AC_ERR_*

The sas_ata_qc_issue function was incorrectly written to return error
codes such as -ENOMEM. Since libata OR's qc->err_mask with the
return value, It is necessary to make my code return one of the
AC_ERR_ codes instead. For now, use AC_ERR_SYSTEM because an error
here means that the OS couldn't send the command to the controller.

If anybody has a suggestion for a better AC_ERR_ code to use, please
suggest it.
