patch to fix the error code

Some print drivers inf files are broken and cause driver installation to fail
on Samba servers. Windows returns WERR_APP_INIT_FAILURE in that case, we should
do the same. Windows machines are less unlucky with that.

typical patterns in the log files then:

  move_driver_file_to_download_area: Unable to rename [x64/universalxp] to [x64/3/UNIVERSALXP]: NT_STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_NOT_FOUND

       spoolss_AddPrinterDriverEx: struct spoolss_AddPrinterDriverEx
          out: struct spoolss_AddPrinterDriverEx
              result                   : WERR_ACCESS_DENIED

Attached patch makes us return the same error as Windows does.
