[PATCH] lmLogOpen() broken failure exit

From: Al Viro
Date: Sun Jun 05 2011 - 14:28:01 EST

Callers of lmLogOpen() expect it to return -E... on failure exits, which
is what it returns, except for the case of blkdev_get_by_dev() failure.
It that case lmLogOpen() return the error with the wrong sign...
