mtd: mtd_blkdevs: fix error path in blktrans_open

The 'blktrans_open()' does not handle possible '__get_mtd_device()' failures
because it does not check the error code. Moreover, the 'dev->tr->open()'
failures are not handled correctly because in this case the function just
goes ahead and gets the mtd device, then returns an error. But Instead, it
should _not_ try to get the mtd device, then it should put back the module
and the kref.

This patch fixes the issue. Note, I only compile-tested it. This patch was
inspired by a bug report about a similar issue in 2.6.34 kernels
sent by Mike Turner <admin@islandsoftware.co.uk> to the MTD mailing list:
