How do we proceed with this fix?
I believe error propagation here is not wanted because:
1) A failure to fetch or parse the ANA log should not be considered
   an error in ctrl initialization.
2) Such error will not cause problems in teardown.
3) The same failure is possible in ANA work and we do not take
   any action in such case.
4) Adding support for failure to nvme_start_ctrl() adds complexity
   and does not look useful due to the above 1-3.
