I can not think of any other reason why the PQAP(TAPQ) would fail
other than the AP instructions are not available at all. However,
the old implementation returned -ENODEV on failure and 0 on
success. The new implementation now returns 1 for success
and 0 for failure. This is just one of a couple of functions related
to ap xxx available. I'll rework them all to return a boolean value
soon.
