CHROMIUM: iwl7000: Fail fast if HW is inaccessible at probe

If the HW is not responding at probe time, fail immediately complaining
about it. Without this, we see that the kernel spends > 100ms trying to
load firmware (even gives an incorrect impression that it actually
loaded a firmware) and do unnecesary processing before concluding that
the device is not accessible:
