Subject: [PATCH] net/mlx5e: Fix freeing of unassigned pointer

Commit ff7ea04ad579 ("net/mlx5e: Fix potential null pointer dereference")
added some missing null checks but the error handling in
mlx5e_alloc_flow() was left broken: the variable attr is passed to kfree
although it is never assigned to and never needs to be freed in this
function. Fix this.

Addresses-Coverity-ID: 1497536 ("Memory - illegal accesses")
Fixes: ff7ea04ad579 ("net/mlx5e: Fix potential null pointer dereference")
