Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.14 26/40] mac80211: check return value of rhashtable_init

From: MichelleJin <shjy180909@...il.com>

[ Upstream commit 111461d573741c17eafad029ac93474fa9adcce0 ]

When rhashtable_init() fails, it returns -EINVAL.
However, since error return value of rhashtable_init is not checked,
it can cause use of uninitialized pointers.
So, fix unhandled errors of rhashtable_init.
