i40e: fix bug in return from get_link_status and avoid spurious link messages

Previously, the driver could call this function and have only true/false
returned, but false could mean multiple things like failure to read
or link was down. This change allows the caller to get all return values
in the call chain bubbled back to the source, which keeps information about
failures from being lost.

Also, in some unlikely scenarios, the firmware can become slow to respond
to admin queue (AQ) queries for link state.  Should the AQ time out,
the driver can detect the state and avoid a link change when there
may have been none.
