Subject[PATCH 4.9 32/51] media: vivid: fix error handling of kthread_run
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Hans Verkuil <hverkuil-cisco@xs4all.nl>

commit 701f49bc028edb19ffccd101997dd84f0d71e279 upstream.

kthread_run returns an error pointer, but elsewhere in the code
dev->kthread_vid_cap/out is checked against NULL.

If kthread_run returns an error, then set the pointer to NULL.

I chose this method over changing all kthread_vid_cap/out tests
elsewhere since this is more robust.
