Subject: [PATCH 4.19 259/280] md: Fix failed allocation of md_register_thread

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

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

From: Aditya Pakki <pakki001@....edu>

commit e406f12dde1a8375d77ea02d91f313fb1a9c6aec upstream.

mddev->sync_thread can be set to NULL on kzalloc failure downstream.
The patch checks for such a scenario and frees allocated resources.

Committer node:

Added similar fix to raid5.c, as suggested by Guoqing.
