gtpie_gettlv(): fix return value on specific error.

Make gtpie_gettlv() return an error if gtpie_getie() returned an error.
Previously, openggsn would fail to complain about certain missing elements.

Technically, a missing IE could be detectable from the *length value, but the
code in gtp.c relies on the return value to detect missing elements, which did
not work prior to this commit. For example:

if (gtpie_gettlv(ie, GTPIE_EUA, 0, &pdp->eua.l,
		 &pdp->eua.v, sizeof(pdp->eua.v))) {
		    len, "Missing mandatory information field\n");
	return gtp_create_pdp_resp(gsn, version, pdp,

If an EUA were missing in this code path, openggsn would fail to issue an error
message. Since pdp and hence pdp->eua.l is initialized as all-zero, it would
probably not do much harm besides failing to issue an error.

I haven't checked all callers though.
