Request for Review (xs) - 8159073: Error handling incomplete when creating GC threads lazily

The error handling in add_workers() was not treating the non-initializing
case correctly.  If in the non-initializing case, it is OK to fail the 
of additional threads but the number of created threads should not be
incremented nor non-existent thread started.

Tested with gc_test_suite with UseDynamicGCThreads turned on.
