Subject[PATCH v3 15/15] rpmsg: char: return an error if device already open
The rpmsg_create_ept function is invoked when the device is opened.
As only one endpoint must be created per device. It is not possible to
open the same device twice. But there is nothing to prevent multi open.
Return -EBUSY when device is already opened to have a generic error
instead of relying on the back-end to potentially detect the error.

Without this patch for instance the GLINK driver return -EBUSY while
the virtio bus return -ENOSPC.
