workqueue: Only unregister a registered lockdep key

The recent change to prevent use after free and a memory leak introduced an
unconditional call to wq_unregister_lockdep() in the error handling
path. If the lockdep key had not been registered yet, then the lockdep core
emits a warning.

Only call wq_unregister_lockdep() if wq_register_lockdep() has been
called first.

Fixes: 009bb421b6ce ("workqueue, lockdep: Fix an alloc_workqueue() error path")
