Subject: [net-next 15/15] net/mlx5e: Fix potential null pointer dereference

From: "Gustavo A. R. Silva" <gustavoars@...nel.org>

Calls to kzalloc() and kvzalloc() should be null-checked
in order to avoid any potential failures. In this case,
a potential null pointer dereference.

Fix this by adding null checks for _parse_attr_ and _flow_
right after allocation.

Addresses-Coverity-ID: 1497154 ("Dereference before null check")
Fixes: c620b772152b ("net/mlx5: Refactor tc flow attributes structure")
