Subject[PATCH 10/25] afs: Handle EIO from delivery function [ver #2]
Fix afs_deliver_to_call() to handle -EIO being returned by the operation
delivery function, indicating that the call found itself in the wrong
state, by printing an error and aborting the call.

Currently, an assertion failure will occur. This can happen, say, if the
delivery function falls off the end without calling afs_extract_data() with
the want_more parameter set to false to collect the end of the Rx phase of
a call.

The assertion failure looks like:

AFS: Assertion failed
4 == 7 is false
0x4 == 0x7 is false
------------[ cut here ]------------
kernel BUG at fs/afs/rxrpc.c:462!

and is matched in the trace buffer by a line like:

kworker/7:3-3226 [007] ...1 85158.030203: afs_io_error: c=0003be0c r=-5 CM_REPLY
