alloc_workqueue is not checked for errors and as a result,
a potential NULL dereference could occur.

This does not compile. I think this should be kfifo_free.

This throws a compiler warning "return makes integer from pointer 
without a cast". What's worse, kfd->ih_wq is NULL here and 
kfd_interrupt_init returns 0 to mean success, so returning a NULL 
pointer is definitely not what you want here. This function should 
return a negative error code on failure. I propose -ENOMEM.

I'm going to apply your patch with those fixes.
