Here is the definition of each status code for NetVSP.
enum {
NVSP_STAT_NONE = 0,
NVSP_STAT_SUCCESS,
NVSP_STAT_FAIL,
NVSP_STAT_PROTOCOL_TOO_NEW,
NVSP_STAT_PROTOCOL_TOO_OLD,
NVSP_STAT_INVALID_RNDIS_PKT,
NVSP_STAT_BUSY,
NVSP_STAT_PROTOCOL_UNSUPPORTED,
NVSP_STAT_MAX,
};

Existing code returns NVSP_STAT_NONE = 0, and with this patch
we return NVSP_STAT_SUCCESS = 1.
Based on testing, either way works for now. But for correctness
and future stability (e.g. host side becomes more stringent), we
should follow the protocol.

Thanks,
- Haiyang
