Close. Old "change" command also fails, but with a confusing error.

Old behavior:

- Change uses qmp_blockdev_open_tray, which "succeeds."
- Change then tries to use qmp_x_blockdev_remove_medium, but receives
potentially confusing error "Tray is locked."
- Moments later, the tray is likely now open.

New behavior:

- Change uses do_open_tray, which returns -EINPROGRESS.
- Change can propagate this error upwards without attempting to remove
the medium.
- User gets "Device <foo> is locked and force was not specified, wait
for tray to open and try again" error.

Why: "The new error tries to inform the user that there is an action
pending and that the command, if run again, may succeed."
