sparc: Fix cleanup crash in bbc_envctrl_cleanup()
If kthread_run() fails or never gets to run we'll have NULL or a pointer encoded error in kenvctrld_task, rather than a legitimate task pointer. So this makes bbc_envctrl_cleanup() crash as it passed this bogus pointer into kthread_stop(). Reported-by: BERTRAND Joël <joel.bertrand@systella.fr> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
