Subject: [PATCH 4.16 49/81] s390/qeth: handle failure on workqueue creation

4.16-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Julian Wiedmann <jwi@...ux.ibm.com>


[ Upstream commit a936b1ef37ce1e996533878f4b23944f9444dcdf ]

Creating the global workqueue during driver init may fail, deal with it.
Also, destroy the created workqueue on any subsequent error.

Fixes: 0f54761d167f ("qeth: Support VEPA mode")
