xen: drop writing error messages to xenstore
xenbus_va_dev_error() will try to write error messages to Xenstore under the error/<dev-name>/error node (with <dev-name> something like "device/vbd/51872"). This will fail normally and another message about this failure is added to dmesg. I believe this is a remnant from very ancient times, as it was added in the first pvops rush of commits in 2007. So remove the additional message when writing to Xenstore failed as a minimum step.
