From: Michal Suchanek <msuchanek at suse.de>

BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1795662

 - log an error message when registration fails and no error code listed
   in the switch is returned
 - translate the hv error code to posix error code and return it from
   fw_register
 - return the posix error code from fw_register to the process writing
   to sysfs
 - return EEXIST on re-registration
 - return success on deregistration when fadump is not registered
 - return ENODEV when no memory is reserved for fadump
