Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.9 084/100] IB/rxe: check for allocation failure
 on elem

From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@...onical.com>

[ Upstream commit 4831ca9e4a8e48cb27e0a792f73250390827a228 ]

The allocation for elem may fail (especially because we're using
GFP_ATOMIC) so best to check for a null return.  This fixes a potential
null pointer dereference when assigning elem->pool.

Detected by CoverityScan CID#1357507 ("Dereference null return value")

Fixes: 8700e3e7c485 ("Soft RoCE driver")
