After check all related code for xenbus_printf() and xenbus_dev_error(),
for me: if xenbus_printf() is for optional error, it will print warning;
all xenbus_dev_error() are not for optional error, except 2 area:

  drivers/pci/xen-pcifront.c:866:               xenbus_dev_error(pdev->xdev, 
  drivers/pci/xen-pcifront.c:947:               xenbus_dev_error(pdev->xdev, 

In fact, for me, not only they need be improved, but also skip 'err' for
pcifront_scan_root() and pcifront_rescan_root(), are they bugs? (I guess
they are). If they are really bugs, I shall send related patch for it.

Yeah, originally, it really should be, but if this patch can continue,
for me, can remove it in this patch, too (for the original patch, I
intended to remain it for discussing and analysing in this patch).

But all together, if you stick to remove 'fail' code block in original
patch, for me, it is OK.
