Subject[PATCH v2] net/mlx5e: fix bpf_prog reference count leaks in mlx5e_alloc_rq
The function invokes bpf_prog_inc(), which increases the reference
count of a bpf_prog object "rq->xdp_prog" if the object isn't NULL.

The refcount leak issues take place in two error handling paths. When
either mlx5_wq_ll_create() or mlx5_wq_cyc_create() fails, the function
simply returns the error code and forgets to drop the reference count
increased earlier, causing a reference count leak of "rq->xdp_prog".

Fix this issue by jumping to the error handling path err_rq_wq_destroy
while either function fails.
