Driver init failure not detected

Hi,

If I have a driver with an init function defined in the driver_entry e.g

static struct driver_entry oci_driver_entry = {
    oci_init,
    oci_start,
    oci_stop,
...
}

and the oci_init function returns -1:

static int oci_init(void)
{
return -1
}

I would expect that the erl_ddll:driver_load/2 call would fail. But it
returns 'ok'

This is not what the documentation says..

Am I doing something wrong here or is it a bug?

Thanks,
Sean
