net/mlx5e: Fix NULL pointer derefernce in set channels error flow
New channels are applied to the priv channels only after they are successfully opened. Then, the indirection table should be built according to the new number of channels. Currently, such build is preformed independently of whether the channels opening is successful, and is not reverted on failure. The bug is caused due to removal of rss params from channels struct and moving it to priv struct. That change cause to independency between channels and rss params. This causes a crash on a later point, when accessing rqn of a non existing channel. This patch fixes it by moving the indirection table build right before switching the priv channels to new channels struct, after the new set of channels was successfully opened.
