I think it was a mistake. There is also one more issue in
qla4xxx_get_host_stats where it is returning an internal qlogic
specific error value. This patch should fix all issues.


[PATCH] qla4xxx/iscsi: fix get_host_stats error propagation

This patch fixes 2 bugs.

1. qla4xxx was not always returning -EXYZ error codes when
qla4xxx_get_host_stats failed.

2. iscsi_get_host_stats was dropping the error code returned
by drivers like qla4xxx.
