Subject: [PATCH] blscfg: Don't leave grub_errno set to an error if the command

After a command is executed, the function grub_print_error() is called to
print any active error messages if these exist.

The blscfg command calls to the grub_strtol() function to try to convert
the default entry string to a number, in case the default is an index.

If this function is not able to do the conversion, it sets the grub_errno
variable to GRUB_ERR_BAD_NUMBER. But the blscfg command wrongly left that
set and so the caller would be confused thinking that the command failed
and that an error message has to be printed.

This caused the first error in the stack to be printed, polluting the GRUB
output and preventing the menu to be hidden. So reset the grub_error var
to GRUB_ERR_NONE again if was set to GRUB_ERR_BAD_NUMBER by grub_strtol().

Resolves: rhbz#1699761
