Default dm persistent data: handle space map checker creation failure

Updated patch header:

If CONFIG_DM_DEBUG_SPACE_MAPS is enabled and dm_sm_checker_create()
fails, dm_tm_create_internal() would still return success even though it
cleaned up all resources it was supposed to have created. This will
lead to a kernel crash:

general protection fault: 0000 [#1] SMP DEBUG_PAGEALLOC

Fix the space map checker code to return an appropriate ERR_PTR and have
dm_sm_disk_create() and dm_tm_create_internal() check for it with
IS_ERR.
