RDMA/uverbs: Use an unambiguous errno for method not supported
Returning EOPNOTSUPP is problematic because it can also be returned by the method function, and we use it in quite a few places in drivers these days. Instead, dedicate EPROTONOSUPPORT to indicate that the ioctl framework is enabled but the requested object and method are not supported by the kernel. No other case will return this code, and it lets userspace know to fall back to write(). grep says we do not use it today in drivers/infiniband subsystem.
