Subject[PATCH 3.18 019/104] scsi: megaraid_sas: return error when create DMA pool failed
[ Upstream commit bcf3b67d16a4c8ffae0aa79de5853435e683945c ]

when create DMA pool for cmd frames failed, we should return -ENOMEM,
instead of 0.
In some case in:


create DMA pool failed,
--> megasas_free_cmds() [1]

failed, then goto fail_alloc_cmds.
-->megasas_free_cmds() [2]

we will call megasas_free_cmds twice, [1] will kfree cmd_list,
[2] will use will cause a problem:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address
