From: Dexuan Cui <decui at microsoft.com>

This is a longstanding issue: if the vmbus upper-layer drivers try to
consume too many GPADLs, the host may return with an error
0xC0000044 (STATUS_QUOTA_EXCEEDED), but currently we forget to check
the creation_status, and hence we can pass an invalid GPADL handle
into the OPEN_CHANNEL message, and get an error code 0xc0000225 in
open_info->response.open_result.status, and finally we hang in
vmbus_open() -> "goto error_free_info" -> vmbus_teardown_gpadl().

With this patch, we can exit gracefully on STATUS_QUOTA_EXCEEDED.
