[PATCH] maple_tree: Fix mas_empty_area_rev() search exhaustion at root node

When the possibilities of finding a gap are exhausted at the root node,
the error code was not returned which results in returning a range that
is currently occupied.  Add the necessary check for the error code and
return to the caller.
