If you run mx_init() on a machine without the MX driver loaded or no NIC
detected by the driver, you get a specific error code (MX_NO_DEV) and
the default error handler print something like:

MX:asterix:mx_init:querying driver:error 5(errno=2):No MX device entry
in /dev.

You can overload the default error handler to not see the message.
