scsi: megaraid_sas: return error when create DMA pool failed

when create DMA pool for cmd frames failed, we should return -ENOMEM,
instead of 0.
In some case in:


          create DMA pool failed,
        --> megasas_free_cmds() [1]

       failed, then goto fail_alloc_cmds.
    -->megasas_free_cmds() [2]

we will call megasas_free_cmds twice, [1] will kfree cmd_list,
[2] will use will cause a problem:
