ctl: improve error message for meta buddy group add failures

meta buddy groups that contain the root inode must be created such that
owner of the non-mirrored root inode becomes the primary of the newly
created group. adding a group that does not satisfy this condition
should give the user some info about why the process failed, not just
*that* it failed and an error message no user can be expected to

see #941
