[PATCH 3.13 161/187] RDMA/iwcm: Use a default listen backlog if needed

3.13.11.7 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Steve Wise <swise at opengridcomputing.com>

commit 2f0304d21867476394cd51a54e97f7273d112261 upstream.

If the user creates a listening cm_id with backlog of 0 the IWCM ends
up not allowing any connection requests at all.  The correct behavior
is for the IWCM to pick a default value if the user backlog parameter
is zero.

Lustre from version 1.8.8 onward uses a backlog of 0, which breaks
iwarp support without this fix.
