Subject[PATCH 4.14 10/41] batman-adv: fix backbone_gw refcount on queue_work() failure
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Marek Lindner <mareklindner@neomailbox.ch>

[ Upstream commit 5af96b9c59c72fb2af2d19c5cc2f3cdcee391dff ]

The backbone_gw refcounter is to be decreased by the queued work and
currently is never decreased if the queue_work() call fails.
Fix by checking the queue_work() return value and decrease refcount
if necessary.
