Subject: [PATCH 01/11] mwifiex: fixup error cases in mwifiex_add_virtual_intf()

If we fail to add an interface in mwifiex_add_virtual_intf(), we might
hit a BUG_ON() in the networking code, because we didn't tear things
down properly. Among the problems:

 (a) when failing to allocate workqueues, we fail to unregister the
     netdev before calling free_netdev()
 (b) even if we do try to unregister the netdev, we're still holding the
     rtnl lock, so the device never properly unregistered; we'll be at
     state NETREG_UNREGISTERING, and then hit free_netdev()'s:
	BUG_ON(dev->reg_state != NETREG_UNREGISTERED);
 (c) we're allocating some dependent resources (e.g., DFS workqueues)
     after we've registered the interface; this may or may not cause
     problems, but it's good practice to allocate these before registering
 (d) we're not even trying to unwind anything when mwifiex_send_cmd() or
     mwifiex_sta_init_cmd() fail

To fix these issues, let's:

 * add a stacked set of error handling labels, to keep error handling
   consistent and properly ordered (resolving (a) and (d))
 * move the workqueue allocations before the registration (to resolve
   (c); also resolves (b) by avoiding error cases where we have to
   unregister)

[Incidentally, it's pretty easy to interrupt the alloc_workqueue() in,
e.g., the following:

  iw phy phy0 interface add mlan0 type station

by sending it SIGTERM.]

This bugfix covers commits like commit 7d652034d1a0 ("mwifiex: channel
switch support for mwifiex"), but parts of this bug exist all the way
back to the introduction of dynamic interface handling in commit
93a1df48d224 ("mwifiex: add cfg80211 handlers add/del_virtual_intf").
