IB/ipoib: Prevent hung task or softlockup processing multicast response

This following can occur with ipoib when processing a multicast reponse:

Coinciding with stack trace is the following message:

    ib0: ib_address_create failed

The code below in ipoib_mcast_join_finish() will note the above
failure in the address handle but otherwise continue:

                ah = ipoib_create_ah(dev, priv->pd, &av);
                if (!ah) {
                        ipoib_warn(priv, "ib_address_create failed\n");
                } else {

The while loop at the bottom of ipoib_mcast_join_finish() will attempt
to send queued multicast packets in mcast->pkt_queue and eventually
end up in ipoib_mcast_send():

        if (!mcast->ah) {
                if (skb_queue_len(&mcast->pkt_queue) < IPOIB_MAX_MCAST_QUEUE)
                        skb_queue_tail(&mcast->pkt_queue, skb);
                else {
                        ++dev->stats.tx_dropped;
                        dev_kfree_skb_any(skb);
                }

My read is that the code will requeue the packet and return to the
ipoib_mcast_join_finish() while loop and the stage is set for the
"hung" task diagnostic as the while loop never sees a non-NULL ah, and
will do nothing to resolve.

There are GFP_ATOMIC allocates in the provider routines, so this is
possible and should be dealt with.

The test that induced the failure is associated with a host SM on the
same server during a shutdown.

This patch causes ipoib_mcast_join_finish() to exit with an error
which will flush the queued mcast packets.  Nothing is done to unwind
the QP attached state so that subsequent sends from above will retry
the join.
