ovsdb-idl: improve error handling when schema is not available
A common error scenario with OVN is to attempt to use ovn-nbctl when
the OVN databases have not been created in ovsdb-server:
1. ovn-nbctl sends a "get_schema" request for the OVN db to ovsdb-server.
2. ovsdb-server fails to find requested db, sends error response
3. ovn-nbctl receives the error response in ovsdb_idl_run(), but
takes no specific action.
4. ovn-nbctl hangs forever in IDL_S_SCHEMA_REQUESTED state (assuming
a timeout wasn't requested on the command line).
This commit adds a new IDL state, IDL_S_NO_SCHEMA, which is entered
when a negative response to a schema request is received. When in
this state, ovsdb_idl_is_alive() now returns 'false', allowing clients
(currently ovn-nbctl, ovn-sbctl, vtep-ctl, and ovs-vsctl) to detect this
condition and exit with an appropriate error message.
