I took a very brief look and think that the better way will be to put
this "if (null)" check inside ib_umem_release() and make unconditional
call to that function in all call sites.

It was intentional for two reasons. First, bnxt_re already had exactly
same logic without any checks of returned call inside bnxt_re_create_cq().
Second, we need to release kernel memory without any relation to HW state.

Maybe I should move bnxt_qplib_free_hwq() to be immediately after
bnxt_qplib_rcfw_send_message() inside of bnxt_qplib_destroy_cq()?

Sure, I'll do it tomorrow.
