Subject: [PATCH v2] net/mlx5e: Fix use of freed pointer

If the call to mlx5_fc_create() fails, then shared_counter will be freed
before its member, shared_counter->counter, is accessed to retrieve the
error code. Fix by using an intermediate variable.

Addresses-Coverity: CID 1497153: Memory - illegal accesses (USE_AFTER_FREE)
Fixes: 1edae2335adf ("net/mlx5e: CT: Use the same counter for both directions")
Signed-off-by: Alex Dewar <alex.dewar90@...il.com>
---
v2:
	- Add Fixes tag (Leon)
	- Use ERR_CAST (Leon)

Hi Leon,

I've made the suggested changes. Let me know if there's anything else
you need :)

There is also this patch in the series which doesn't seem to have been
reviewed yet: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20200927113254.362480-4-alex.dewar90@gmail.com/

Best,
Alex
