At one point the original se_cmd->execute_cmd() callback return value
where used to determine which type of SCSI exception + sense payload
needed to be generated..

Now this is done using proper cmd->scsi_sense_reason assignments
(TCM_INVALID_CDB_FIELD for target_emulate_request_sense failure for
example), and the ->execute_cmd() call in __transport_execute_tasks()
only checks for non zero status to determine when trigger the exception
via transport_generic_request_failure()
