Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 34/64] blk-mq: protect debugfs_create_files() from failures

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@...uxfoundation.org>

[ Upstream commit 36991ca68db9dd43bac7f3519f080ee3939263ef ]

If debugfs were to return a non-NULL error for a debugfs call, using
that pointer later in debugfs_create_files() would crash.

Fix that by properly checking the pointer before referencing it.
