Returning the error count in the case q->request_fn is called for
a self submitted request like for example REQ_SPECIAL would be handy and
well defined. For the cumulative case it would of course make sense to
return the cumulative error count. Tough not very meaningfull, it would
indicate the occurrence of the error very fine.
