Subject: [PATCH net-next] net: openvswitch: fixes crash if nf_conncount_init() fails

If nf_conncount_init fails currently the dispatched work is not canceled,
causing problems when the timer fires. This change fixes this by not
scheduling the work until all initialization is successful.

Fixes: a65878d6f00b ("net: openvswitch: fixes potential deadlock in dp cleanup code")
