Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 33/64] relay: check return of create_buf_file() properly

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

[ Upstream commit 2c1cf00eeacb784781cf1c9896b8af001246d339 ]

If create_buf_file() returns an error, don't try to reference it later
as a valid dentry pointer.

This problem was exposed when debugfs started to return errors instead
of just NULL for some calls when they do not succeed properly.

Also, the check for WARN_ON(dentry) was just wrong :)
