Hi,
I had an issue with blktapctrl on xen-ppc.
The reason is easy - currently we have no blktap in our linux tree, but because blktapctrl did not print out a useful error statement in my case I struggled a while to find the reason. I also saw no useful module error messages because it is not damaged, its just not there in my case. This patch adds an error message if xc_find_device_number fails, all other goto's to open_failed have already their error output, this just adds one more.

[XEN][TOOLS][PATCH] Add one more error reason statement to blktapctrl
blktapctrl already prints out exits reasons for all goto's to open_failed except of not finding a device number for blktap0
This patch adds just that message so the user will get more info than just "Unable to start blktapctrl"
Common source of this issue is that blktap is missing/failed to load/...
